In ArcMap, when you export to an image format (i.e. enhanced metafile), the after-draw was included.
In ArcGIS Pro, when you export to an image format, i.e. enhanced metafile, overlays are *not* included.
Is this an oversight? If not, when do you plan to add this functionality?
Also note that in ArcGIS Pro, if you use the Print or Export options for any format available, overlays are *not* included in the final copy. This really seems to be an oversight. I would expect overlays to be included at least when you do a print of your map.
Any thoughts on this from ESRI? Are there plans to include overlays with the export API?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to capture "just the map" part on the screen? The idea would be to take a screen capture of just the active map in lieu of exporting to a metafile until the export API includes overlays.
Overlays cannot be exported.
Would it be possible for your workflow to use features in a File GDB instead? Have you looked at Map Notes instead for adding graphical notations to maps? They can be temporary or permanent additions to the map. They get saved to the File GDB and can be exported as an image from the map.
Thanks Uma. I will look into the Map Notes to see if that is an approach we can take. Is there a sample that shows how map notes are used (or created)?
Right now I am working on taking a screen capture of just the map area and making pretty good progress.
Are there plans in the future to include overlays in the export API? This was available in ArcMap.
Thanks again for your assistance.
I will investigate this idea later this week when I have a little bit of extra time.
I do have a question related to this though. Is there a way *not* to add the features to the undo stack? Typically features are created using EditOperation.Create. Is there an alternative where nothing is added to the undo stack (and it also won't "confuse" AGP when undo/redo is used as well).
