Is there a way to make a map legend in a Storymap show up by default?

I have a number of maps embedded in a Storymap. Legends are crucial to these maps, and I would like them to show up by default (not requiring any clicking) for the readers. I cannot seem to find a way to do this.

The ability to keep the legend open is now available in ArcGIS StoryMaps. See this article for more information: What’s new in ArcGIS StoryMaps (September 2021) (esri.com)

I also have this question as well. I received a comment from one of my co-workers in regard to the legend being displayed by default (similar to Journal).

Have a way to be able to “pin” the map legend open so it’s possible to do a screen grab of the map with its legend.  I was able to effectively do this using a screen grab with a time-delay, but that’s probably more than we want to ask of all users.

Will this capability be added in a future release?

Ryan/Bryan -- Thanks for the feedback about the new ArcGIS StoryMaps. I've added these suggestions to our backlog so we can consider them for a future release.

OwenGeo. Do you have an ETA on when having legends default to open will be available? I could really use this for my StoryMaps.

Hi Owen, 

Thanks for considering this is the next release. We also have many colleagues requesting the legend to be open by default in their story maps.

Thanks!

Yes I need this functionality as well as some of the people who use my Storymaps have never used one before and dont know where the legend is. Ideally I would have the legends made visible so I dont have to tell everyone who uses my Storymap where the legend is
