The ‘Zoom To’ drop-down menu allows you to select either the current map scale, the current map extent, or a standard map scale as the map area.

Print Map Template (Figure 3)
The Print Map Template allows you to export a printable map using a variety of pre-defined sizes/formats and file types. Depending on how these templates are configured, some fields may or may not be available for customization.

In the example below, after selecting a template from the drop-down list ("8.5x11 Landscape"), the user is presented with a variety of fields to customize their printable map. Document resolution (High, Medium, Low), title and notes fields are available for customization. This template also allows the user to choose a desired output format or file type.

Clicking on "Export" will prepare your printable map document for download. When your document is ready, you will be prompted to download the file.
