Using ArcMap 10.1 I Merged multiple .shp layers (each with multiple polylines) into one .shp
The resulting layer will not draw, I get the following error message: One or more layers failed to draw: [LAYER NAME] There was a problem drawing the shapefile. Drawing aborted.
I have re-done the merge but have the same problem. This is a very large layer - is there a size limit? Could it be taking too much memory to draw?
I don't need to see the layer but want to run intersect with it (so that I can calculate the length of the lines in multiple buffers) and that is returning a blank output - I presume because it is failing to draw.
