ArcPy layer.isRasterizingLayer only recognizes lines and polygons when it is ran from the Python Window referencing the 'CURRENT' MXD, whereas points are recognized when referencing the path of the MXD or using the 'CURRENT' MXD. Can only use 'CURRENT' in the Python Window. import arcpy mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument('CURRENT') layers = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd) for layer in layers: #list(reversed(layers)): if layer.isRasterizingLayer: print "isRasterizing:"
