Problem: Features from a feature class disappear when zooming or panning in layout view

Description

Features from a feature class disappear when zooming or panning in the layout view.

Cause

The spatial index of the feature class is corrupt.

Solution or Workaround

The spatial index must be rebuilt.

Warning:
Before attempting any of these steps, make sure a backup copy of the feature class has been made.


Note:
Spatial indexes cannot be rebuilt for personal geodatabase feature classes.

  1. Open ArcCatalog.
  2. Navigate to the affected feature class.
  3. Right-click the feature class and click Properties.
  4. In the Feature Class Properties dialog box, click the Indexes tab. Find the section that says Spatial Index.
