Does ArcGIS Pro provide color ramps choices for layer symbology?

Last Published: December 30, 2020


Color ramps are called color schemes in ArcGIS Pro. A color scheme provides a range of related colors containing at least two colors; the transition between pairs of colors can be either a continuous gradient or a discrete boundary with no blending from one color to another. Refer to Color schemes for more information. To use and customize a color scheme, open the Color Scheme Editor pane to manually change the scheme color, transparency, and position.
  1. In ArcGIS Pro, right-click the layer, and click Symbology.
  2. In the Symbology pane, under Primary symbology, select the desired symbol type.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow for Color scheme, and click Format color scheme.
