Description

I'd love to be able to zoom to the extent of a feature within a layer.

For instance, zoom to the extent of the roads that were paved within the larger road layer.

That feature already exists—select any feature(s) and choose Zoom to Selection (see screen shot).

I mis-spoke.

Classify/symbolize a layer with a classified renderer.

Select one of those classifications under the Layer in the Layer list. Try to zoom to selection. You can't. This could be helpful to zoom to the sub-extent of a layer based upon the particular feature class being investigated.

I see—so, perhaps a drop-down alternative to "Zoom to Layer" or a contextual click from the legend item. Essentially, a shortcut to "Select by Value".

Yes. I guess it would be a proxy for doing a Select by Attributes followed by a Zoom to Selection on those same features. I've run across numerous situations where I wished I had this capability. I really think it'd be a nice usability enhancement.
