Classified renderer allows the break values to be adjusted higher than the maximum value of the raster but not lower than the minimum value

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When attempting to change the break values to apply to a greater range of values, the maximum value can be adjusted to a value larger than that contained in the raster; however, the minimum value can not be changed to a value lower than that contained in the raster.


This is a known issue with the Classified renderer.


  1. Create a raster that contains the range of values needed.
  2. Save it as a layer file.
  3. Use the layer file to import the symbology to the desired raster.
