Not all layer symbology methods are supported by ArcMap's Advanced Drawing Options (ADO). Symbols from layers drawn with unsupported symbology methods will not appear in the ADO dialog box.
These methods are supported:
· Single symbol
· Unique values
· Unique values, many fields
· Match to symbols in a style
· Graduated colors
· Graduated symbol (point and line layers only)
If you are working with ADO via the ArcObects API, keep in mind that ADO is only supported by these renderers: SimpleRenderer, ClassBreaksRenderer, and UniqueValueRenderer. These renderers are used by the methods listed above.
