Perhaps this is really an Arcmap question, but I am using arcpy.searchcursor to find new records, perform a definition query on a polygon, and create maps from the polygon outline. Everything works as intended except after the first map, subsequent maps have a polygon with the blue selection outline. Ive tried a few things to eliminate this. One workaround I have considered is creating a new layer from the definition query, and removing the old layer. I have also changed the options in Arcmap to not use blue as a selection color.
I suppose this has something to do with the searchcursor, but I am not sure how to get around that.
Thanks for looking
