Whenever I select a feature in an attribute table it gets highlighted which prevents me from seeing the symbology of that feature. I tried choosing No Color in the appearance option, but that results in it being highlighted white.

This is what it looks like after a select by attribute query (how I'd like it)

But this is how it appears when I double click the feature to go to it

Anyone know a way to make it hollow or adjust the transparency?

    Please post what version of ArcMap you are using. I can't replicate this error in 10.2 so I'm guessing you have an older version. – Sara Barnes Sep 5 '14 at 17:05

    @SaraBarnes I am using 10.1. I found that when right clicking and selecting Pan To the issues goes away. – Dzinic Sep 5 '14 at 17:08

    I'm glad you have a workaround. I don't understand why you'd still be having this error. It could be a glitch in 10.1. In 10.2 it works correctly when I double click. – Sara Barnes Sep 5 '14 at 17:39
  • Is your attribute table in "show selected records" mode, instead of "show all records"? – nmpeterson Sep 5 '14 at 19:36

    You are in Selected Records Only mode in a Table View. Highlighted records are always opaque (No Color is white, not transparent). Solutions after highlighting: Toggle between Show Selected Records mode and Show All Records mode to show or hide highlighting without removing highlighting. To remove highlighting click far left of one record to switch from group highlighting to single record, then hold the Ctrl key and click far left side of that record to remove highlighting from the last record. Solutions without highlighting: Right click the far left of a record and choose Pan To or Zoom To. – Richard Fairhurst Sep 7 '14 at 18:01
