Hi,

I need to add a symbology to a feature layer using the labelling properties symbol option (or if there is another way), and I want to customize the symbology as shown in screenshot 2.

Could someone please show me how to create the same symbology using the Arcgis Pro application?

Thanks in advance.

I'd do it with the symbology.

  • Go to the symbol's properties and add 4 marker layers:

  • 1st Marker: 
    • use this form:

    • activate symbol property connections and map the "Text string" variable to your text field

    • set font attributes
  • 2nd marker: set color to white, set size
  • 3rd marker: switch to square, set color to green, rotate by 45°, set size (size of second marker + 2 )
  • 4th marker: switch to line, set "Shape line symbol" to "Single stroke"

  • all markers: set "Offset Y" (4th marker to half of the others), uncheck "Angle to line", set "Placement" to something appropriate (I chose "At measured units" with an interval of 100m)
