Use this dialog box to select drawing elements on the Display Manager.

NoteThis functionality applies only to drawing objects.

To add a raster image to the map

When you select an item, such as a layer or a object class, a new layer is added to the Display Manager and all objects in that item are added to the new layer. If you select multiple items, for example two layers, then multiple layers are added to the Display Manager.

List of Items

Feature Class

Lists all feature classes in the active Feature Definition file.

Layer

Lists all the layers in the current drawing. To select from layers in attached drawings, create a property query.

Topology

Lists all topologies in the current drawing. If the selected topology is unloaded when you view the display map, it will be loaded.

Image

Lists all images in the current drawing. If the selected image is unloaded when you view the display map, it will be loaded.

Group Selection

If you choose more than one item, you can select this option to group all the new elements under one heading in the Display Manager. When elements are grouped, you can easily turn off all the elements by turning off the group.
