Hello,

I am trying to use the "Go To XY" tool to find locations within a large satellite image by adding a labelled point to the map. This tool was working well but has recently stopped working. I have restarted my computer and reinstalled ArcMap but it still will not work. 

When I first open ArcMap, and before opening any layers, if I use the Go To XY tool in the "meters" then I can use all of the Go To XY functions. However, when I try to use the tool with decimal degrees the tool stops working. Also when I have the map layers open, the Go To XY tool still does not work, even when set to "meters". 

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

Freddie

May I suggest Resetting your ArcGIS Application Profile?

Note that it would reset your folder/database/server connections in Catalog Window, if any.

Thank you for the suggestion,

I have tried renaming the template files and completed a full Application Profile Reset, however neither of these have worked.
