I agree that this would be useful.

Absolutely needed! It was on the old map viewer, don't understand why it's not been made available in the new one.

Yes, this is definitely needed. ASAP.

Seems like a basic element for a map. Why was it left off (and still not in) the new Map Viewer??

ESRI why would you leave such a basic cartographic feature out of the new map viewer?  Please add this ASAP.

Absolutely agree with everyone above, this is a basic and essential feature.  Can someone from ESRI let us know where this sits on their development plan i.e. when will this feature be added?

Why was it even deleted? It can still be seen in the classic viewer. One of my ESRI instructors didn't even notice it was gone when I asked him why it was eliminated. Please bring this feature back.

Please Esri, come back the scale bar element to the Map Viewer, is an elemental cartographic element.

3 reasons for including the line scale on maps:

  1. teach my students to put a scale on every map - it's standard practice
  2. When they take screenshots of different GIS maps they need to show that they have thought about the scale for comparison purposes
  3. It was on the Classic version - why would it be removed?

Please make this happen. This is so essential. Even Google has a scale bar on their maps.
