I noticed that when I edit a feature, the feature isn't highlighted when selected (see first screenshot). The features only highlight outside of edit mode (second screenshot). This map will be used by non-GIS users, so I want to enable some kind of highlight to make it easier for them. Is there a setting that I need to turn on? I can't find much information about this issue.  nohighlight.JPGhighlighted.JPG

Hi @jeromewu68.,

It looks like you're using Map Viewer Classic. Is there a reason you want to work in Map Viewer Classic instead of Map Viewer? If you use the Edit > Select tool in Map Viewer, you will see the features highlighted as you expect.

Most of my non-GIS users are more familiar with Classic, but I'll have them switch over if Map Viewer is the only one with features highlighted.

@jeromewu68 In the settings to the layer, what kind of editing is allowed?

Hi, I ended up using a view only MIL layer but I had the same setting for Editing and allowed Update Attributes only. It seems like highlighted features in Edit mode is only available for the new Map Viewer? I'm not entirely sure.
