Hi,

I've been trying to use ArcGIS a little bit and a few months ago got so that I could insert text and symbols for curb stops and fire hydrants etc. And delete them and move them... Then after not getting around it for a few months and stupidly not putting explanations in my notes now I can not figure out how to insert symbols again. I'm trying to attach a jpg of a screen shot of what I've been fighting with and in the table of contents it shows the symbols but when I right click on one and select copy then go click a spot on the map and select paste it just seems to add another symbol in the table of contents section.

Before doing the above I click the Editor button and select Start Editing and I've also learned that clicking the arrow icon beside that button will allow me to highlight symbols that are already in place, and move them and delete them. But I can't figure out how to add new ones and have not been able to find an explanation on line. I've found explanations on how to create new ones and how to modify their appearance but none of those explanations told how to insert them in a map after you have them the way you want them.

If this is the wrong forum I'm sorry and can someone please tell me a better place to go ask.

Thank you for any help!

Is this forum associated with ArcGIS? I thought I saw esri associated with it but if not I'd like to know not to ask about it here.
