If you right-click the feature layer and select save as layer you can save the connection, Style, joins, and calculations of that layer. If it is a SHP, SDF, etc. your file will have to be on a network so it points to the same place on everyones computer. If it is Database driven it will point to the database without issue.


Then when adding it to your map, go to data -> Load layer. Then choose the layer you saved.

But ı need to save my style to library, like block editor.

For example, stream and highway styles...


When any gis user,creating a stream layer, he needs to standart style. but when he create a  stream layer, map 3d will create a default line styles.


For that reason, gis user have to import real style.


Please look the attachment,

It may be express my problem.


Thank you again
