I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.4.
I have access to an .mxd file with a bunch of point locations placed on the map project as graphics. I'd like to convert these to features. I am aware of "Convert Graphics to Features" command under drawing (http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/map/page-layouts/converting-graphics-into-features.htm). However, no matter what I try (selecting, not selecting the elements; layout or data view), I am unable to get the command to be accessible (ie. not grayed out). I believe the problem is because the graphics were originally drawn on the layout view and the conversion seems to require they be on the data view.
Is there a way to transfer these graphics to the data view?
