I've drawn shapes onto my map. How do I view them in the 3D View?

To display drawn objects like text, points, polylines, and polygons in the 3D view, you will need to move them into a base layer on your map. To do so:

  1. Select the map.
  2. Click Home | Add to Map | Layer | Empty Base.
  3. Click on the first drawn object in the Contents window, hold SHIFT, then click on the last drawn object. This will select them all.
  4. Press CTRL+C to copy them.
  5. Select the new, empty base layer in the Contents window.
  6. Click Features | Group | Start Editing.
  7. Press CTRL+V to paste the drawn object onto the map.
  8. Use your mouse and/or the arrow keys on your keyboard to move the shapes to the correct location.
  9. Click Features | Group | Stop Editing.
  10. Click on the first drawn object in the Contents window, hold SHIFT, then click on the last drawn object. This will select them all.
  11. Press DELETE on your keyboard to delete them.

Now the shapes will appear on the map when you create the 3D view.
