I know everyone is excited by that title. In other news, I did have a respectable early stage Geonet profile going, but had to switch over to a different account within my company. New protocol - keeping this on my personal account. Anyways I can program in Python and am experienced in ArcMap (not yet Pro - thinking I should).
My question is this: What is going on with the Python console in ArcMap? Multiple times a day arcpy stops functioning. For instance:
arcpy.FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion(feature_in, feature_path_out, feature_name)
yields >>> Nothing. It runs in no time, but nothing happens. No errors, no copied feature class. I have to close ArcMap, do the exact same thing again and voila! It works. Another instance today:
mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")
# it runs almost instantly
# see what's there
# should say:
<MapDocument object at 0x1b6c6c30[0x1bc4fb40]>
I get no object back. Then I have to quit and open the mxd again. I've tried reload(arcpy) to no avail.
Once again a critical ArcGIS piece of functionality that doesn't function in a fatal way to my workflow.
