I inserted symbols in a digitized map, but when zoomed out, the symbols get bigger and zoomed in they get smaller.

I know that the scales of symbols can be fixed in ArcGIS Pro, but how can this be done in ArcMap?

I am using version 10.4


It is done in ArcMap by setting a reference scale property on a Data Frame which is more or less the same way it is done in ArcGIS Pro except in the latter it is set as a Map property.

For ArcMap see Working with data frame reference scales.

For ArcGIS Pro see Map reference scales.
