ArcMap won't do that for a single layer - transparency is handled for the entire symbology as a unit, not in pieces. So, the solution is to just have two copies of the layer in your table of contents. One with the outline and no fill, the other with no outline and a colored fill with whatever transparency you are looking for. Just make sure the layer with ...

I think I discovered the problem. Is a kind of conflict with AVG Protection. If you use AVG antivirus (AVG Protection 2016.71.797 in my case), try to uninstall it, reboot and try ArcMAP again. It worked for me.

My understanding is that the error report that you sent to Esri will feed into a possible resolution for what caused your ArcMap to encounter a serious application error at some time in the future, but that it does not constitute a request for support under any maintenance agreement that you may have with them. I suggest renaming/deleting your Normal.mxt ...

These have been added to the upcoming 2.16 release. There's options for 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 circles, and 1/2, 1/4 squares, and finally 1/2 rectangles.

Yes it does, but it's quite clunky compared to the one in ArcMap (in my opinion). You can see it here in the Project pane, I have right-clicked and created a new Style. You can then open that style in the Project View, and add new items. Once your new items are created you can modify to suit, or you can save new items from the symbology pane as in ...

The purple color is assigned to a polygon that has a NULL value under the Field DN OR has a value but not 0 or 1. For example, if you assign a value of 2 to a polygon, it will have a purple color. So in your case, if all the polygons have 0 or 1 values, the purple color has no effect, and you can check it out if you don't want to show it in the legend. In ...

As you can see in the documentation this is achieved by applying two (or more) marks to the point. So for your example something like: [usage='example'] { mark: symbol('square'), symbol('circle'); } [usage='example'] :nth-mark(1) { size: 16px; fill: yellow; } [usage='example'] :nth-mark(2) { size: 14px; fill: red; }

The difference between your lowest (8) and highest (575) values, 567, isn't divisible by 12 without a remainder. Even the Arcmap example shows an interval of 50 from 8 up to 558, and then a class of 16.851. The only non-programmatic solution in QGIS that I can think of is to change the upper scale value to 558, create an equal interval color ramp with 12 ...

I contacted ESRI support about this issue and they sent me this response: I did some research about potential issues with AVG antivirus and found that there is a related bug already logged with our parent company Esri Inc. For your reference, this number is BUG-000096502: ArcMap crashes when modifying symbology when certain antivirus software is installed. ...

In case there are no free fonts with such symbols, it's possible to create SVGs using InkScape with the Circle/Arc tool (Tutorial Here). I created this symbol in InkScape. I made an ellipse with F5, and Ctrl-Drag to make it a circle. I duplicated it using CtrlD, and edited the start/end angles on the duplicate. I then changed the styles on each layer. ...

Convert the font or image into an EMF vector graphic in graphic software such as Adobe Illustrator then use it as the picture marker symbol and it will be rendered as vector. You can also add any EMF vector (i.e. logo) to map layour as image and it will also render as vector. You can introduce 100% transparency to remove backround but only solid and 100% ...

It's targeted to version 2.16 - so not available in any public releases yet (unless you compile your own version!)

I just want to expand on @jon_two answer. If it does turn out to be a data problem you might be able to diagnose and fix it yourself. First try exporting to another format, e.g. shapefile to FGDB or vice versa, and try your symbology setting again. If that doesn't work you can try to see if individual features are causing the crash. Try exporting a single ...

It sounds like a data issue to me. Your feature class may be corrupt or formatted in a way that ArcMap cannot handle. If the reinstall of ArcGIS or rename of Normal.mxt suggested here does not work, I would get in touch with Esri support (or your local distributor) and send them a sample of your data. I wouldn't expect a fix in time to complete your ...

Points have no size, so any buffer is measured from the centroid of the point and symbol size has nothing to do with buffering. You can test this by creating a point and setting a small symbol and buffering by 5m, and then changing the symbol to something very very large and buffering again by 5m. When you measure the diameter of the buffer polygons you ...

If you mean to have 1-4 adjacent color boxes at bottom-left, top-left, bottom-right, and top-right positions then I would do it by having one square symbol with points POINTS 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 END Then I would make four copies of the symbol with different ANCHORPOINTs as documented in http://www.mapserver.org/mapfile/symbol.html. ...
