I have a problem with a shapefile I created exporting features from another shapefile.

I have all my lines visible but their rows only appear in the attribute table window when they're selected, do you know why and how can I fix this ? (I posted pictures to illustrate my problem)

selected lines

unselected lines

You have hit the button that only shows selected items in the attribute table. If you click the button next to it you can see them all.

    I think this is a good question - I've seen it stump a lot of occasional arcmap users. Commented Jun 21, 2018 at 14:13

    @tony-bof Don't feel too bad. ArcGIS has a truly awful UX. I often have trouble finding that button when I actually want to enable it, in spite of knowing it exists.
