Problem with changing a set of symbols

Discussion created by diederik1 on Jul 2, 2014
Hello Everybody,

Just new here and I hope someone can help me out. Here is the problem:

I have a layer file that contains thousands of different elements numbered from 1 to around 20.000. I changed the symbol of around 200 of these elements by hand. All symbols are black but these 200 symbols are red and they are thicker (thickness = 10).

Now I want to change the color from red to orange and the thickness from 10 to 5. So basically I want to tell arcgis "if you see an element that is red and has thickness 10 change it to orange and thickness 5".

Is there any way I can do this?? Preferably without a script :) for instance, I tried to order all symbols by symbolstyle, so I can select the red ones all at once, but arcgis doesn't seem to be able to do this.

Really hope you guys can help me out!
Thanks in advance!
