Follow the steps below to open the Symbol Property Editor dialog box from ArcGlobe to modify the display properties of your 3D symbols.
The basic properties of symbols used to display your features and graphics can be modified to make changes to the display. You can also choose to save symbols into styles for reuse at another time or in other documents. Styles are logical collections of symbols and map elements and when you use a symbol from a style, you are placing a copy of it in your map or 3D view. There is no reference maintained back to the style. Reusing the contents of a style saves time from recreating the symbol.
To open the Symbol Property Editor for advance properties for 3D symbols in ArcGlobe, do the following.
- Click the symbol of the layer in the table of contents.
- Optionally double-click the layer to open the Layer Properties dialog box, click the Symbology tab then click the symbol whose properties you want to change.
- Click Edit Symbol.
- Click OK on the Symbol Property Editor when you have finished modifying the symbol.
- Optionally click Save As on the Symbol Selector dialog box to save the modified symbol to a style. Then type a name and a category for the symbol. Browse to a style to save it into, or use your personal style, which is the default. Keep in mind that the styles installed with ArcGIS are read-only, so you will not be able to save symbols into them.
- Click Finish on the Item Properties dialog box if you are saving the symbol to a style. Otherwise click OK on the Symbol Selector dialog box.
The Symbol Property Editor dialog box appears with access to advanced symbol properties.
