hi, i am rather new to archgis pro (and GIS in general). I have and odd problem. i created a layer of polygons and after working on it for some time, i started having an issue, every new feature i create on the map disappears from the screen immediately as i finish creating it, but it appears in the attribute table, alas without spatial data.
Do you have unique values on symbology? If so, and you add a polygon that is not included in the current symbology settings, the feature will not draw, but, will show in the attribute table.
Might check the "Other Values" option and see if they show.
This is for point dataset, but same settings apply:
that is what i thought initially, but just to be sure i change the symbology to single value,
also in the attributes table the shape area is 0, and so is shape length, so assume that for some reason it creates a new row for the polygon, but does not preserve the spatial attributes
Hmm, that is a puzzler.
Perhaps something has corrupted in the feature class? I would try the repair geometry tool on the dataset, and see if that resolves it.
it didn't work... but i should maybe note, that this was exported from a different layer...
Not sure where to go from here.
What kind of layer, and what was it imported from?
Guess the next thing I would try is create a new FGDB polygon feature class, import the fields from the current one, and add to the map.
Then, select all the "good" values in the attribute table, copy and paste them into the new feature class.
Then, test editing on the new feature class. If it "works", replace old FC with new.
thanks i'll try that tomorrow
