Hi, I've spent ages trying to find out how to add new points to a point shapefile I've created. Whenever I start an editing session and choose my point shapefile as the file to be edited, the Create Features window opens without that shapefile in it. There are other polyline and polygon shapefiles there that I already created but not the new point one. I'm just trying to add a handful of points to mark where objects are in the field. What am I doing wrong here?
