Layer scale range setting for the data frame's current scale is not used by the magnifier window

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The data frame and magnifier window typically display data at different scales. When layers are set to display between specific minimum and maximum scales, the magnifier window may not show the same layers as data view.


The magnifier uses the same display subsystem as the data frame. This facilitates editing and other important tasks in the magnifier.
