Limited options in 'Format All Symbols'

When I have a point layer that I'd like to change from a circle to a square symbol, I'm unable to change it to a square by performing the same steps that I would normally do in ArcMap.


For instance, here are my workflow steps:

  1. Select a layer in Table of Contents
  3. Symbology Pane > layer is already symbolized and configured as a circle, and colored by Unique Values
  5. So I select all the symbols > right-click > Format Symbols


  1. Except I'm disappointed to see a limited set of options when formatting multiple symbols.


Kory Kramer This has been a frustrating missing feature for several years now. What do you think is the most efficient way to change the symbol type for a point layer, without losing the other formatting (colors, outline weights, etc.) I've specified for multiple symbols within a single layer?
