Query - once you enable Spatial Filter... it's "stuck" on by design now. Jianxia Song
I want to give users this option but to be able to choose whether or not to use it.
The only workaround I've figured out is to write a note in my Help document that they should select the County Boundary which effectively nullifies this functionality. But it should have an "on / off" button. Similar to how the Buffer option has an on/off. I do not believe users will intuitively follow the current design and it muddles the use of this powerful feature. It took me a moment see this was an issue.
Alternatively, put a "None" in the dropdown list for Spatial Relationship menu choice.
(add a NONE to this, above)
