Hi,

I've created a tool that draws graphics (Overlay) onto the screen to help identify sewer connections.  It's all working fine....most of the time.  See below for an example.  What I am finding is that in some .aprx files the graphics draw fine, but in others they do not.  I think it may be a case of when the .aprx is created by importing an old .mxd document into ArcGIS Pro.  Does anyone know if that might be the cause??  Or should I be looking something else??

With a 'pure' .aprx file, no problems (ie. the red arrows get drawn):

With an imported .mxd to .aprx file, problems (ie. no graphics get drawn):

Hi Brian,

 I tested my tool with a bunch of Mxd files from the ArcObjects community samples (10.8 sample data) and i was not able to duplicate the issue.  If you find a duplicatable case i will take another look.

Hi Brian,

 I was not able to duplicate this problem using Pro 2.6.  It's possible that this only happens with certain MXDs or maybe the Pro version is relevant.  I attached a small test program which contains a map tool that allows to select line features and displays the selected lines' vertices as graphic overlay points.  Maybe you can try the app with your MXD.

Running the add-in should yield output like this (this is an imported mxd):

Hi Wolfgang Kaiser‌.  What version of ArcGIS Pro did you build that project on?  All of the references come up as 'missing'.

I am on 2.6.0

Hi Brian,

 Sorry about that but i am using a Pro install path of c:\arcgis ... you can just right click on the solution (or project) and use the Pro SDK's fix references utility to fix the references for your environment.

Hi Wolfgang Kaiser‌.  Thanks for that tip.  That is a very handy tool I hadn't seen before!!

Your tool is working in both maps.  I then tried my tool again in the imported on, and it still wasn't working at the same time yours was.  So i made another Map in my project, and it did work in that.  So still totally confusing.

I ended up linking the imported map with this new map just so I was working with the same data in each.  And then 'poof'....magically everything started working in the imported map.  Not sure if it's a coincidence or not, but I'll keep an eye on it.  Strange goings-ons.  :)
