the dreaded Error 00230 <Service> layer has a different projection than the map

Re: Error 00230 Service layer ...blah blah

OK, I wasn't able to glean anything from similar posts. And the Error Help page didn't help.

The Share As > Web Map Analyzer indicates the Graphics Layer with the issue.
But, that is associated with the Text, "Atlantic Ocean" (see below)
What does that have to do with a "Service layer"..? And, does a Graphics Layer really have a projection..?
Somewhere it suggest clearing the cache ...if so, I wouldn't know which option (see below)

Yes, it's true that the actual map layers are in a Puerto Rican coordinate system, and the Current Map View is in WGS 84 Web Mercator (auxiliary). Is that the problem? If so, I can fix it, but the Error message doesn't seem to indicate that, so that's why I'm confused

Any ideas what's going on here?
Thanks,

OK, well, after a separate response from Esri Support, the answers are:

1. A Graphic Layer will take on the coordinate system of the Map Frame's coordinate system at that instance

2. The Graphic Layer's coordinate system CANNOT be changed

So, the workarounds are to either

  • Delete and re-insert with the Map Frame coordinate system set appropriately
  • Reset the Map Frame coordinate system (and potentially re-project other Layers) to match that of the Graphics Layer
  • Convert Graphics to Features, then potentially re-project

Here's the actual Error (00230).
And like  say above, the Error Options [...] and associated Help Doc don't give me much to go on

Thanks for any help out there!
