I am testing out the much needed Print widget in Experience Builder, and I noticed that only some of my graphics from the Draw widget are showing up in my exported maps. The issue seems to be persistent on the Line and Polygon tools, but Rectangle and Circle seem to work occasionally.
As shown in the preview:
Output from the Print Widget (map only):
This behavior seems to occur regardless of what layout or format options are used. I'm assuming it may be a bug, but has anyone seen similar behavior?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Draw widget does not use the mechanism with Map Viewer (Map notes in classic or Sketch layers in the new version), so a comparison with Map Viewer would not be quite relevant.
@BrantSollis2 We will take a look at this.
Thank you both for following up! I did test it in the new Map Viewer, and the behavior is as expected (all sketches shown in the output).
@TonghuiMing As you stated, it appears the New Map Viewer uses a different mechanism for drawing graphics. Is it possible to use Sketch Layers in ExpBuilder? The map viewer already has the important functionality of adding Text graphics and snapping.
The Map Viewer builds its advanced functionality (such as the text you mentioned) on top of the Sketch widget, as the function of MV itself. Thus, it is not possible for us to reuse any of those, unfortunately.
As for the snapping function, it is doable as an enhancement since Sketch already supports it. Feel free to post it in ExB Ideas or bring it up via Esri Support and we will evaluate based on the feedback. Thanks.
Print Widget: Great addition!
* Is there a way to specify an output other than .png? (ex: pdf file)
* The line and polygon from your draw widgets don't seem to be pushed forward onto the Print geoprocessing task. (drawn points do work)
* Is there a printWidget and drawWidget we can download separately for ExB Developer Edition?
Also : your draw widget shows some size, colors, transparency but then that section disappears as soon as I draw one point on the map .
Next: draw text (color/font/rotation) and Callout bubbles?

@FredericPoliart_EsriAU - The settings below relate to the type of the point symbols. For vector symbols (like the default one), it has the fill/outline/transparency settings; for picture symbols, these settings are not applicable except for the size customization - this is expected.
Hi @Jianxia and co,
I have a related problem.
I draw polygons, lines and points on the map, but only the point are getting printed.
This is what I drew:
This is what I get:
And, interestingly, this is what i get after modifying (moving) all drawings:
I'm currently experiencing a problem with the print widget............viewing the PDF in Chrome/Edge, the text appears fine, however, on opening in PDF application, AerialUnicodeMS is missing and showing all text as DOTS.
