Frequently asked question

Are there any known limits with using special characters in points fields?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Yes. Some difficulties may be encountered with My Layers if using special characters in the points fields. For example, if the layer name contains a quotation mark ("), then the Identify My Points button won't work. If the type name contains a carat (^), then the point does not appear on the map but the point label does appear.
