points/lines turn not visible

Oct 18, 2010 at 3:30 AM

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, I read point data and line data into the map, save each layer as shape file, but when I want to change the symbology of points or lines, the problem occurs. If I right-click the layer and choose properties and from there I change the symbol or color, that layer turns invisible, or at least the items disappear. If I just double click the symbol/line under the layer name, and change color or symbol, everything works fine. If I have labels for the point, they will remain visible, even the points disappear. But if I open that file I have saved again, then I can change symbology from layer's property dialog without any problem.
