00013: Layer uses a symbol that is not supported

Your layer contains symbols that are not supported for basemap layers or map services. The unsupported symbol type is indicated in the text of the error message. You'll need to change the symbols used by your layer to continue using the layer.


Choose a symbol that is supported, or change the type of map display for showing quantity if the symbol type is specific to the layer's symbology type. For more information, see About symbolizing layers to represent quantity.

More information

The following symbol types are not supported by basemap layers or map services because of their complexity and increased computation time:

  • Simple marker 3D symbol
  • Marker 3D symbol
  • Character marker 3D symbol
  • Simple line 3D symbol
  • Texture fill symbol

Basemap layers do not support chart symbology.

You should be aware that not all symbology options for showing quantity are supported for fast map display. See Supported symbology options for more information.
