Add Abandon Symbology to the Map

When you create an Abandon subtype, its symbology will default to match the symbology of the subtype called "all other values." To change the symbology, you need to add values to the symbology tab of the layer.

Steps for Designer Users

Designer displays a feature's symbology differently based on its Work Function.

  1. Right-click the feature class in the table of contents (e.g., Display tab) and select Properties.
  2. Click the Symbology tab.
  3. In the Show field at the left side of the screen, select Unique Values, Many Fields (under Categories).
  4. You will see three Value fields. The first two will be populated. In the example below, the first (Material) is the feature's subtype. The second is the feature's Work Function. The values you enter must correspond with these fields.
  5. Click Add Values.
  6. In the New Value text box, type the values that fall within the domains for the fields that appear in the Value fields, shown in the figure above. In the example below, 6 corresponds with Abandon in the Material domain and 2 corresponds with Remove in the Work Function domain.
  7. Click Add to List. When you have finished adding values, click OK to save your changes and dismiss the dialog.
  8. You may click the value in the Label field to edit.
