Can feature selection options for point symbols besides color be changed in ArcGIS Pro?

Last Published: February 22, 2022


There are situations in which it may be desirable to change appearance options for selected features in ArcGIS Pro other than color. This may be done to increase contrast to:

  • Make features more visible against background features
  • Make features easier to see compared to unselected features

At the time of this writing, only color can be configured for point feature selection. However, there is currently an Idea in the Esri Community requesting changing point size: Option to change size of Selection (Point) in ArcGIS Pro

In response to a similar suggestion, ArcGIS Pro: symbology for selected polygons, additional selection options for polygons were added at Pro 2.7.
