I currently have around 200 features that all need have the same symbology applied to them. I have used the ApplySymbologyfromlayer_management however this takes much to long to process, at least a few hours and the labels arent brought across either.
import arcpy mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT") inputlayers = ['ST13003-00108100-009','ST13003-00116584-073','ST13003-00115372-080','ST13003-00112948-011','ST13003-00111736-021','ST13003-00122544-083','ST13003-00099716-018'] symbologylayer = 'Layer' for layer in inputlayers: arcpy.ApplySymbologyFromLayer_management(layer, symbologylayer)
This works however justs takes way to long.
What I want to do export all lines from ArcMap as a layer or layer package and apply the symbology across all of the features without doing this manually.
When I try this however this error occurs.
Runtime error Trace back (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in File "c:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\management.py", line 5696, in ApplySymbologyFromLayer raise e ExecuteError: ERROR 000967: The input layer type must be a feature layer, raster layer, or tin layer.
I looked at creating Representations, is that the solution or is there another way around this?
