bookmarks with layer functionality?

November 17 2009 | 0 comments

Does anyone know how to create a bookmark that will restore current active layers as well as the view?

Mapping Center Answer:

Currently, it is not possible for your bookmark to also turn on layers.

One way you may be able to accomplish something similar is to set a scale range at the individual or group layer level by displaying layers at certain scales.

If you set scale dependencies on particular layers to match the scale that you saved your bookmark, when you go to a specific bookmark, those layers will turn on.  The same thing will happen if you set scale dependencies at the group layer level.
