Each time I'm working with the TOC, select a layer from a group, and make a change, the group collapse. There is a way to leave the group open so I can do a change in and other layer without having to start over.
Is the Layout View the active view when you are working with group layer members? If so, this is a known bug. To work-around this:
1. In the Contents pane, right-click the Map Frame containing the map you want to work with
2. Choose "Open"
This will open a map view of your map.
3. Make the changes you want to the sub-layers.
Thanks for the feedback.
Ok, I try in the layout activated and now everything still open between changes.
It's a bug but a good feature to add. In TOC, a button for activate or not automatic collapsing could be a nice improvement. Sometime you need to let it open to make change and other times the automatic collapsing could be a dream.
Please feel free to add your idea to the Ideas Site - ArcGIS Ideas.
Thanks Tom, appreciate your support.
