This screenshot is when world imagery layer is turned on but my shapefile is only displaying the YSUBuildings layer. This screenshot is when world imagery layer is turned on but my shapefile is only displaying the YSUBuildings layer.1]

I'm creating a shapefile by outlining buildings on a base map, I've outlined several buildings now I am labeling other types of buildings but the symbology won't display for them. Yet when you click on them it displays the outline I drew and the information.

    Do you have symbology defined for the layer? Can you select the features even though they don't display? – lambertj Feb 20 '18 at 22:11

    We would definitely need to see your symbology properties as @User2009 requested and probably the attributes of at least one of the features that isn't drawing to even have a guess at why Arc is being mischievous. – Michael Stimson Feb 20 '18 at 22:38

Go to the symbology tab on the Layer Properties. Then click the Add Values button where you'll be able to select the category for the buildings you've created.

Sorry, I'm not on a computer with ArcGIS at the moment so I can't show screenshots.

  • Are you referencing layer properties out of the table of contents? – D. Wingler Feb 22 '18 at 23:55
  • That's correct. You control symbology from there. – Fezter Feb 23 '18 at 1:36
