    When using ReviewerConsole for example as:

    ReviewerConsole.exe /wks:Workspc.gdb /create

    it creates new Reviewer workspace with default spatial reference (WGS-84). It would be nice to have the ability to specify the spatial reference as a parameter or to change the default spatial reference.

    It's importent (when possible) to add a progress bar (espatily for GP) to control the time foe each step.

    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.

    I am hoping to be able to use Data Driven Pages in ArcGIS 10 to create mapbooks.  I have used (30-day trial) software from MapLogic called "Layout Manager" (one time intial cost $1200 - my City cannot pay).  It is the industry leader for the moment.  One strong capability of that software is indexing.  Lets say you create a "Fire District Map" showing the city's roads, streets, hydrant locations, and more.  THERE MUST BE AN INDEX FOR EVERY MAPBOOK (if desired).  The index software figures out for every segment of road or streets which pages of the mapbook contain these streets.  Long Hill Ave may appear on 6 different pages.  It must list those pages.  Constitution Boulevard will also appear an many pages.  The index will tell you which pages to look for that Boulevard.  Huntington Circle will be on one page only.  The index confirms which page.  The index is usually located as a separate section at the end of the mapbook.  The user should have options as to how the index is formated (font, font size, comma delimited page numbers, 1-2-3 column formating, in alphabetical order with option for a break and large capital letter between each alphabet group, page numbering, and so forth. 

    A fireman going to a fire needs to quickly see which page(s) of the mapbook he needs to turn to to get to the fire and find the hydrant location.  It may be a matter of life or death.  An INDEXING CAPABILITY is VERY IMPORTANT!

    [To my knowledge, ArcGIS 10 does not have this capability yet.]  I have been asking ESRI about this.

    Some times the best placement of a scale bar is not horizontal at the top or bottom of a page but vertical on the side. In this case I have to make the dataframe show a defined extent and convert the scale bar to graphics for editing. We should have the option to rotate the bar 90 degrees.

    Roadway files include many symbol classifications (Interstate, US Highway, State Highways, Local Roads, Ramps, etc.), each of these have a different symbology (color, thickness, label) AS WELL AS a different label (Interstate shield, US Highway shield, State Highway shield, local road name, or <null>).

    When saving symbology as a layer file (.LYR) the label settings are not included, so I have to re-work label settings every time. It's very frustrating and a waste of time.

    Is it possible to get all symbology properties (including thematic) into a table in the Geodatabase. Columns would include RGB Colour, Line Width, Fill Pattern etc. The table would refresh when symbology changes in a OGC Service (WMS/WFS) and ArcSDE? We have a requirement to publish symbology properties as part of metadata and data dictionaries published in HTML. Below is an example

    It would be great if the ability came with standard ArcGIS Desktop to add a North arrow that shows Magnetic Declination, Grid North and True North.  I understand this functionality comes with the PLTS extension but it seems like it should be a standard functionality with a Desktop license.

    When labelling a contour layer (or any line layer using the contour placement method) with labels ON the line, the line is visible behind the numbering (for example through the hole in a zero). When this is applied on a plain background, a halo matching the background colour can be used to block the line out, however this isn't suitable when an image or other non-plain background is used. To overcome this, there should be an option when using the contour placement for labels, which removes the contour line from behind and immediately around the labels. This also shouldn't require the use of annotation for the labels...

    In DS Map Book, it was possible to export to many file format (png, jpeg, pdf, etc.). Please make them available for Data Driven Pages as PDF. Export to PNG (for example) is only available when scripting with Python. However, not all Data Driven Page options from ArcMap are easy to code in Python.

    So please make available Export to other format than PDF.

    Thanks

    If the DDP index layer is used with a dynamic page definition query, the attribute table reflects the resulting features of the query (correctly).  However, if you add that attribute table to your page layout, the attribute table in layout does not automatically update for each page of the DDP, it will only display the records of the features when it was originally added to the layout.

    It would seem that when using DDP, an attribute table added to page layout would also adhere to the settings for the DDP definition query, but it is not refreshed on each page.  I understand you can use Dynamic Text to display attributes from the table, but it becomes very combersome when displaying multiple attributes, especially if you want them to appear in an actual table, just as they would if you just add the attribute table to layout. 

    My Example:
    I am using the DDP to create a map of individual parcels.  I am using the parcel layer as the index layer, and the parcel ID as each page.  I have two copies of the parcel layers in my TOC, the top layer highlights the parcel of interest, the second all adjacent parcels.  I use a DDP definition query to only show the parcel of interest.  The attribute table will then only show that pages parcel information (correctly).  I would like to see about 6 attributes from this table in my page layout... (ownership information and bundle rights, etc.).  The attribute table in arcmap changes with each DDP page, but when the attribute table is added to a page layout, it does not.  This is what needs to be fixed. If the attribute table added to the page layout reflects the DDP defnition query, then it would then correctly display the ownership information, etc... from the attribute table on each new page.

    It would be helpful if the ability to lock specific map elements in layout view was provided, in order to prevent  these elements from being selected or dragged/moved accidentally. This will hopefully make it easier to select objects that fall on top of or within the data frame. This is especially true when working with text elements in which the dataframe becomes selected instead of the text.

    When you symbolize your data into categories based on values from a certain field, I would like to see the ability to be able to turn on an off those categories with the symbology tab instead of having to remove the category entirely.  There has been many times were I would have found this beneficial to be able to go back into the map and see the data without a certain category that I created.

    Allow Labels to honor Representation Visibility

    Currently, a layer's label properties do not recognize Representation Visibility.  The work-around often suggested (see link below) is to create a definition query on the layer.  This might suit some situations, however it is important to note that you cannot query the Representation Visibility of a feature.  Therefore, a label properties checkbox (or similar) is needed to enable recognition of the Representation Visibility property.

    I would like to see a better control of symbology in the proportional symbols definition so the information shows up nicely in both map and legend.
    • Most simply I would like to be able to specify both the minimum and maximum size of my symbol - just I may do in "Graduated symbols". Currently the only way to scale the maximum size is by excluding low values
    • As a part of the "graduated colors" I would appreciate to be able to specify a certain symbol for values below the threshold for minimum graduated value in order to simplify the legend generation
    • In same direction the legend values should be editable - select own charateristic values rather than the 10** values
    • As others have pointed out elsewhere it would be nice also to be able to graduate colors according to values in a column.
    Regards

    Michael

    In DSMapbook there was a function of users can select pages to enable/disable out of a list (which is not implemented in Data Driven Pages), then batch export the enabled pages (also not implemented in Data Driven Pages). As someone not smart enough to program in python, may ESRI put these features into Data Driven Pages please?

    PS: also please change the current behavior of Data Driven Pages drop-down menu of switching between page numbers and page titles to displaying a list of pages with page names/numbers please...

    Data Driven Pages is awesome. There are so many efficiencies gained from using this feature, but sometimes not every page in the mapbook has every feature listed in the legend.

    My idea is that when Data Driven Pages is enabled, there should be an option for each legend item (in the legend properties) to only list features in the legend that are actually visible in the extent of that page. A checkbox to activate this live legend feature would be ideal because perhaps there are base features you want in the legend regardless of whether they're seen or not (like maybe roads, or streams).

    For example:
    Maybe you have a 25 page DDP mapbook showing wildlife obervations, but Sasquatch habitat are only in 9 of those pages, Jackalope are in 23, and el Chupacabra are in 14. You may only want the features seen in that specific map page in the legend so the map user isn't looking for a feature that isn't there.

    I think this would be super useful, (even outside of DDP). It should be simple, all the tools for this to occur should already be in place... Lets make mapbooking even more efficient!

    This is for the Data Interoperability Extension and it's S-57 data format.  Need the ability to read Inland ENC Standard 2.3 veersion of S-57 data in a workbench session.  Currently the software schema for this is at Inland ENC 2.0 standard.  Many nations use S-57 data on Inland rivers and the current standard is Inland ENC 2.3.  This standard is documented here: http://ienc.openecdis.org/.  This standard is used by the Inland Electronic Navigational Charts (IENC) program of the US Army Corps of Engineers.  Any further questions, please contact me:

    It would cut design time in half if there was an option to apply symbol properties from any level of the settings. Currently it can take 4-6 windows just to change 1 color of 1 symbol to then find out it still isn’t right and have to go through all of the windows again. When needing to alter many labels and symbols in map this can really slow the design down. 

    Windows to Change Halo for Symbol
    Figure 1: Windows to alter the halo color for a symbol

    Windows to Change Halo for Label
    Figure 2: Windows to change Halo color for a label

    It would also be convent if you could select multiple symbols or labels > right click > and choose what option you would like to change for all of them while keeping the rest of the settings intact.

    Many times I create a whole symbology for a feature class and realize it would benefit greatly if there was a thicker outline on all the simple marker circles, or they would all show better if I added a halo. Or maybe I just spent half a day designing a map using a halo setting around my label classes, clicking through all the windows, to find out my boss doesn't approve of the color choice. I then need to update each one individually. This then gets into the whole need to click through all the windows again wasting more valuable work hours.

    As a cartographer first analyst/programmer second this feature would greatly help me!

    Thanks!

    Make the "Node Renderer" tool from the Production Toolsets a part of Desktop, out-of-the-box.  I know, I know, topologies take care of off of that stuff but as a long-time data editor, I miss being able to visualize and symbolize nodes, psuedo-nodes and dangles as I edit.  It's such a simple way to easily avoid making topological errors while editing.
