Set the Feature Drawing Order in ArcGIS Pro

With ArcGIS Pro 3.1, you can now have more control on how features are drawn within the same layer. This is important for some symbology methods when features overlap or cover each other, making your maps clearer and most impactful. This GeoSnap will show you a couple of examples of how the values of a numeric, text, or date field can establish the feature drawing order of a layer. For more information on how to configure this setting in ArcGIS Pro, check out the documentation website:
