    The webApp Builder allows customizing the scale bar, so that the scale text can be displayed. 

    The same capacity is lacking for webmaps, when it would be a good functionnality to perceive what the displayed scale is. 

    Case scenarios could be

    • sharing content to users that are used to using scale texts (does this compare to my usual map?)
    • Making testing cached services easier, by making the testing scale explicit

     

    I have found this post, on the same topic: https://community.esri.com/thread/74556

    However, the reply given in that post provides no help for regular (non-developer) users. 

     

    Could scale texts be added in theArcGIS Online/portal roadmap, please?!

     

    Many thanks!!

     

    With kind regards,
