We have a problem with saving MXD's
We create a MXD based on local FGDB layers. There are some group layers in it.
We save it to the desktop without any error messages.
We close ArcMap and reopen with the saved MXD. Only the group layers exist. All other layers are gone.
The layers does not have red exclamation mark, they are just not in the mxd.
Some of my students have had trouble saving it to the 'desktop' as an issue in some of my classes. Save it to a folder. The desktop is really not a good place to save anything
We tried saving to C:/temp - same results.
If the MXD have no groups it just opened empty.
The fact that the grouped saved shows that somthing did saved...
Hi Michael, the user had layers from both our enterprise geodatabase (sql) and a file gdb on a network drive. I renamed his normal.mxt so we'd get a fresh one and tried repairing his installation. Waiting to hear back if the issue persists, but was hoping someone had a previously successful solution.
