ArcGIS Pro 2.2.0 Windows 10 64 Bit
I'm experiencing some behavior while editing features in a FGDB that is somewhat annoying: the features themselves are on the order of 17,000 building footprint polygons. As part of my edit workflow, when the edit is complete, I update a numeric field from 0 (zero) to 1 (one). The feature class is symbolized on this attribute which I call Touched. 0 = Red, 1 = green. (See image below).
The problem I'm experiencing is sometimes ArcGIS Pro will not honor the symbology change. In the image below, each of the footprints has been edited and the Touched attribute value = 1. However, the highlighted polygon remains red. I've also discovered if I uncheck the feature class to draw, every polygon turns off, except those that do not honor the Touched value symbology. The only way I can get them to turn to green is exit and restart ArcGIS Pro.
I've added this as a discussion rather than a question as I don't expect an answer, but rather this is a heads up for development.
Did this phenomenon occur once you started this editing workflow?
Or did it take some time for this phenomenon to start occurring (e.g. days, weeks, months after starting the editing workflow)?
Was this a file gdb feature class created specifically for this project or has it been around for some time and now you have the business need to modify the feature class?
I've been editing various footprints on and off for the past few months. This little gnat started buzzing around just recently. New data (to me); file geodatabase is brand new. New project too.
Another little gotcha: if you make a geometric change to a feature, and then while it's selected you make an update to the attributes window and tab, your geometric edits revert back to the original. However, if you make a geometric edit, unselect the feature, and then reselect it, the attribute modification as well as the geometric edit will stick
Regarding the other gotcha where geometry edits revert after updating attributes:
Are you using the Edit Vertices tool?
I can reproduce, but only if I haven't finished the sketch yet by either hitting F2, hitting the finish button, or double-clicking.
Can you reproduce even after you finished the sketch?
Yes, using the edit vertices tool; what I've done is unselect the polygon once I'm done and then reselect it to edit the attribute. I'll try F2. Thanks.
edited moments later... Winner winner chicken dinner: F2 does the trick! Still working on the other problem...
I set up some data similar to you, and I'm trying to reproduce in version 2.2.4, but so far, I can't. I'm sure you know the drill, but what we'd like to get is a reproducible pattern. The next time it occurs, take note of the last few steps you did. Some things to consider:
