Shouldn't the feature editor window be under the 'Windows' drop-down at the top? Where is the Feature Editor Template Window?

  • Related/Duplicate: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/103318/… That question is newer, but has more answers and alternative possible solutions (ie, corrupted profile). However I'm not clear if they're really duplicates, since the Template window as GISKid points out is one level further down than the Create Features window. Nor am I sure why this has so many downvotes and the other doesn't.

First enable the editing toolbar --> Customize --> Toolbars --> Editor or right click any grey area and add the editor there. The feature template menu can be found by entering an edit session clicking on "Create Features" (the far right menu) and then clicking the right most menu under the create features panel (see attached screenshot) enter image description here

Here is some additional documentation about feature templates


Try the following:

  1. Start Editing
  2. In the editor toolbar: Editor > Editing Windows > Create Features

enter image description here

Or, the right most button on the toolbar:

  • It's also the rightmost button on the editing toolbar. Commented Jun 25, 2014 at 16:46
