Fixing incomplete templates by deleting the incomplete composite template
One reason that a composite template may be displayed as incomplete is because one of the layers that contains the feature templates used in the composite template is no longer being used. This can be resolved by deleting the composite template.
Use this method if the composite template is no longer necessary.
Use this method only if you will not be using the layer on which the missing feature template is based. Adding the layer to the map after removing it from the composite template will cause more incomplete composite templates to be created.
- Start ArcMap.
- If necessary, load data in the map.
- On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Editing.
Click the Production Start Editing button on the Production Editing toolbar.
The Manage Features and Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes windows automatically appear when you start an edit session using the Production Start Editing tool.Tip:
If the Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes window does not appear when you start an edit session, click the Show/Hide Attributes button on the Manage Features window.
- Click the Create tab on the Manage Features window.
- Right-click an incomplete composite template on the Create tab on the Manage Features window, then click Delete.
The incomplete composite template is removed.
