I have created 9 layers with
and populated them with features. The problem is only 4 of these layers are actually populated as the other 5 are empty.
When I export package, only the 4 layers with data are exported. The remaining 5 are not exported. I would have wanted the 5 empty layers to be exported as well.

    There is not currently any way to get empty layers exported to a package file. What you might do is add one bogus feature to those empty layers, say a point with no simple, name, or attributes. That way they could be exported. You could always check for that feature and mark it as deleted later on import of the package.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
