Bug BUG-000092812


The feature layer created from a set of selected features of a feature class displays all the features of the original feature class.

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

1. Select the features required.
2. In the Table Of Contents, right-click the feature class > Data > Export Data. 3. Export the selected features as a new feature class.


Change the symbology of the selection layer by left or right clicking on the symbol in the Table Of Contents. Changing the symbol in the Table Of Contents does not break the selection layer. However, it is not possible to change the transparency or use unique values/quantitative symbology that way.
