apply symbology from polygons to points

Idea created by on Aug 26, 2020

    Within a map, polygon and point feature classes can be coloured according to a symbology defined in either .lyrx or .stylx.

    I have a symbology created for a geological map with many different colours and i would like to apply this same colouring to a point feature class.

    i cannot do this from a .lyrx file despite the same colour pallettes used for both types of feature class.

    why would this be the case?

    can ArcGIS pro not just take the colour codes from the polygons assigned to an attribute and assign those same colours to a point feature class with the same attribute code?

    to remake the entire symbology for a new feature class is just too labourious to consider....
