    After creating a feature class, it would be convenient to go back after data input, and make changes to the field ordering (position).

    64 bit ArcGIS Desktop

    Under Consideration

    Give us a 64 bit ArcGIS Desktop.  32 bit is dead.  Long live 64 bit.

    1. A couple versions ago we were given the ability to import and work with MS Excel files.  I've always needed to be able to EXPORT a table directly TO an Excel (.xls) file, without have to find a 3rd party app to do it.  (Still not in version 10's Table Options>Export command>Save as type options dropdown.)  Currently, we can export to a text (.txt/.dbf) file then import it to Excel; too many steps.  ESRI can this functionality be added soon???

    2. And why is "File Geodatabase" in the dropdown list twice?

    3. Also, the export should default to the previous "Save as type" last selected?  Not to the never used .dbf file type!!!

    The ability to have multiple layouts in ArcMap Desktop has been needed for a long time.  It is very inefficient to have to create multiple .mxds formatted for various paper sizes/layouts wen the map data is static.  We have the funtionality for multiple data frames in the data view, yet we need this funtionality within the layout view.

    I'm not a fan of the scrolling blue text that is used to indicate progress of backgrounded geoprocessing.

    The reason is that I cannot tell how far progressed the process is.

    On some tools there appears to be a percentage complete tacked onto the end of the scrolling tool name but all I am ever able to read of that is a quick flash of the % sign (and no numbers).

    When geoprocessing is running in the background what I would like to see is:
    1. The tool that is running
    2. The percentage completion of that tool
    There is no need for that text to scroll - which I just find distracting.

    It would be nice to have a spell checker provided as out-of-the-box functionality in ArcMap. For example, incorporate the following script into the core software: http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=12384

    Allow the use of color ramps when symbolizing polygon outlines. Currently one can only change outline colors one at a time. This is extremely time consuming when dealing with more than 3 or 4 unique values in a category.

    The gist of what I'm talking about

    GeoPDF formatted data represents a large and growing source of information. The US Geological Survey is creating all new US Topo products in GeoPDF format and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency is releasing scanned map products in GeoPDF format.

    It would be a great help if ArcMap would be able to display these GeoPDF products ... at least as a background map ... if not exploit their content further.

    Significant improvements are needed in the field of Legend Element creation and management to be more interactive and flexible, to allow for faster and more effective workflow. No wizards or cumbersome dialog boxes necessary. This idea makes use of functionality proposed by Visually Interactive User Interface.

    Interactive Legend Management directly in the Layout VIew
     
    Fast and easy Legend creation:
    • Drag and Drop selected layers from TOC directly to the Layout.
    • Context menu in TOC: Add to Legend/Remove from Legend options.
    • Legend context menu: Add/Remove Item.
    Flexible Legend management and formatting:
    • Resizing Legend Element horizontally and vertically distributes Legend Items into columns and wraps legend text, especially labels into multiple rows.
    • More different shapes of Legend’s frame (not only rectangle). Wrap Legend’s contents around graphics in the Layout. Change vertical content’s alignment.
    • Threading Legend Elements – allow contents to flow between connected Legends in different parts of the Layout. Possibility to rotate Legend Element.
    • Edit Legend’s spacing with possibility to parametrically define each size directly in the Layout.
    • Change Appearance and Arrangement of all Items directly in Legend’s context menu.
    • Access map connection settings directly through Legend context menu. Possibility to define custom reference scale.
    • Insert special-purpose formatting objects: Line, Heading, Space, Column Break, etc.
    • Introduce overall Legend Style, which would define Legend properties and formatting including: items format, spacing between legend’s parts, title format, etc.
    • Legend context menu exampleLegend context menu
     
    Interactive Legend Items manipulation, formatting and display:
    • Reorder, move or copy legend’s items directly in the Layout by drag & drop inside single Legend Element or between different Legends.
    • Possibility to replace items by drag &drop while preserving item’s formatting and settings.
    • Insert Placeholder or Proxy to temporarily take the place of currently unavailable layer.
    • Access Legend Items directly from the Layout. Apply style or custom formatting, patch shape and size to item parts, multiple items selected or the whole legend. Possibility for each item to have custom background.
    • Control display of: Item, Name, Heading, Label, Description, Patch for selected/all items.
    • Legend Item context menu example:Legend Item context menu

    Provide serious Undo functionality.

    Currently there are little to no easy to use tools to administer ArcSDE. We still use the age old command line tools. I see that ESRI is going in a direction where "easy to use" will be given more importance.

    It will be great to have a easy to use Graphycal User Interface to ArcSDE that can allow users to accomplish simple tasks like:

    -Starting and Shutting down the services
    -Gives ability to rebuild stats and indexes
    -Be able to administer user permissions in regards to SDE.
    -Be able see which users are logged in

    Basically routine ArcSDE dba stuff.

    A lot of customers asked me is there will ever be a Recycle Bin for ArcCatalog, since they accidentally deleted data they needed.
    I myself would also love an instrument/utility which can recover data after deleting it (feature classes, tables) from the geodatabase with ArcCatalog (and not only data from the geodatabase, shapepfiles, rasters, geodatabases).

     I would like to see the Google basemaps integrated  into the ArcMap suite of products similar to Bing. It would be nice to have Google maps as an option as a basemap for ArcGIS Online and to easily load it into my desktop applications.

    I have been told by some of the ESRI Staff that the Google coloring scheme does not make for a good basemap.  I find that most people are actually more familiar and comfortable using a Google map. One of the reasons I do not use the other map options, if I can help it, is because I want my users to already know what they are looking at and not have to guess "Is that a highway or a freeway?"

    Each of the major mapping sites such as Google, Bing, Open Street Map and ArcGIS have their strengths. They all seem to update their data at different rates for different areas. One site may update the imagery this year and not do it again for two or three more years. Meanwhile other sites may have updated more recently. It would be nice to have Google as another option if they have better data. I know ArcGIS has a community basemap program out there so that I can upload tiles to enhance the basemap for an area but that takes time that I don't have.

    In all I just want to have Google maps be another option as a basemap for my desktop and web applications

    It would be nice to be able to add a column or delete a column in an attribute table while you are in edit mode.  Instead of having to stop editing add the column then continue editing again.

    Can we PLEASE fix this?Arrowhead not on end of line 

    Marker line endpoints don't place arrows on the end of a line for some reason. Tweaking the endpoint offsets helps but is not really a desirable method for solving this problem.

    Thanks.

    I am sure others out there have had issue with this one. When working with a shapefile, you generally have multiple columns of data. Sometimes you need to delete some of them, as they are not needed, or unwanted, possibly from a geodatabase or any other source.

    I would like to be able to delete more than one column at a time. It takes a little bit to delete one after another, and this seems like a fairly simple request.......

    Often when using a Definition Query, it is necessary to go back to the original data to look at something.  This involves copying the Definition Query to the clipboard and pasting it somewhere else (so you don't accidentally over-copy it) then pasting it back when finished.

    It would be very handy if a Check-Box existed that said "Apply Definition Query"  so that it could be turned on and off as required.

    I would like to see the ability to set multiple scale ranges, SQL queries and symbology properties for a single featureclass in the TOC of an ArcMap document.  As an example, this is already available for featureclass label properties via the Label Manager and Label Classes.  How about a Symbol Manager with Symbol Classess?  With symbol classes, I would not have to create a “group” within the TOC of my map with many instances of the same featureclass to get my scale dependencies, definition queries and symblologies setup to display properly at various map scales.  This is especially important to me for when I expose my map’s table-of-contents to end-users in my web maps.


    The Labeling Manager allows the user to add one or many label classes and for each label class, set a scale range, add a SQL query, and set the text symbology (see, below).  Fantastic!  Let’s do the same for featureclass symbology in ArcMap.
     

    Label Manager Example

    It would be very useful to have an attribute field type be a timestamp field.  In other words, every time a record is updated/created, the current date/time would be populated in this field.  Having the ability to have a field type for USERNAME (using your login from your pc) be an option would be great as well.
