Style Point Rotation with Map 2013

I'm using Map 2013 and not seeing how to choose to use an expression to rotate symbols of attached shp data (see attached png file). I see where you can put in a numeric value but that's all.  Maybe I am just not seeing something?

The "help" says you should be able to use an expression to rotate a symbol.

Hi,

 

>> Or do you have some custom display theme running in Windows that prevents this drop-down arrow from appearing?

Seeing your screenshot my opinion is the OP has set the FontSize to > 100% in his Windows-options.

That makes a lot of dialogs looking bad (and indeed hiding controls), so set it back to 100%.

When I try this, there is a drop-down arrow available to me for Rotation. One of the options there is to Use Expression. Your dialog looks a little different from mine. Are you on Windows XP? Or do you have some custom display theme running in Windows that prevents this drop-down arrow from appearing?

I am not using a custom display.

I have Windows XP.

I will be switching to a new computer with Windows 7 and will go to the 64-bit with Map 2013.

Maybe that will be an improvement, we'll see.

 

I will post a note if the change resolves the issue.

 

Thanks for your reply.

I changed the font size and now I can see the complete pull-down choices.

Thanks you so much!

Chalk one up in the RESOLVED column!
