Hello. I am using ArcGIS 10.5.1. I am trying to create a map frame with coordinates along the sites. When I open the grid properties, I am choosing to remove labels on the left and top sides and I would like to have the right side labels rotated (vertical). However, whatever I choose and independent how often I create a new grid, I always end up… (Show more)
When I open excel, add information into the cell, color (fill the cell with color), then insert the Excel spreadsheet into an MXD as an object or copy/paste, the XLS colored cells look great.

I am trying to create a legend for a map using stretched symbology, where the length of the colors in the legend correspond to the distances between the set intervals, as seen below.     When I try to do this for a new data set I get this legend. It loses the stretch and the intervals.   As far as I can tell I have used all the same settings… (Show more)

The style I want is just a line with dashes along it. when applied the dashes are unevenly spaced and are uneven sizes and shapes.  nothing is consistant. no matter what parameters I put in the quality is still very poor. is this… (Show more)

I need to be able to display either all the original geometries or the mix between original and alternative geometries. Can this be done with geodatabase representations? Your answers and hints will be much… (Show more)
