Hi everyone. I'm making a basemap of Rhode Island for field work out here, and I'm trying to get it so that the state outline .shp turns off and city limits .shp turns on as the scale gets larger.. I know this should be easy to do and i'm getting pretty frustrated. before you tell me it is an easy fix, though, let me tell you that i've been to

and have tried to change visible scale by right clicking and through the properties/general windw, but nothing ever I missing something?!
