Frequently asked question

Why is my theme not visible in the display window even though it is checked on?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The spatial extent of your theme is different from the current extent of the view. Select the theme in the Table of Contents and then select Zoom to Themes from the View menu.

See ArcView User's Guide, Chapter 2, 'Quick Start Tutorial' for more information.
