I've been asked to replicate a map where the selected polygon is shown with a red tick/check mark:
I need to tell ArcMap to use this symbol when a polygon is selected, so that un-selecting the polygon removes the check mark, and selecting a new polygon shows the check mark for that polygon. I don't want to edit a point layer and move the point around, which would be a manual workaround.
I tried setting the layer's selection symbol...
... but the only options here assume that the marker/image should be distributed multiple times throughout the selected polygon:
Is it possible to show a single marker within a selected polygon? I suspect this will require ArcObjects coding (which is probably out of the picture for this) but someone may know of a workaround.
