Changing the display properties for functions in a library (Production Mapping)
This topic applies to ArcGIS for Desktop Standard and ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced only.
The feature builder has several properties that can be customized on the Feature Builder Settings dialog box including the precision of coordinates, the spatial library to use, and the spatial reference extent. The Functions and Libraries category contains parameters related to the spatial library and functions you are currently using. This includes options that allow you to change the current spatial library being used as well as control the appearance of the individual functions in the library. The Function Display Settings dialog box allows you to change the way the functions are displayed in the Functions list.
