I am setting up a project to deal with address questions I get over the phone or to verify business license addresses on applications. I have added a local locator that I use to assign and search for addresses. My problem is, every time I open the project and type an address in the locate window, I get results from the General Locator. I am assuming this is Esri's world locator. I go into settings on the Locate window and uncheck the Enable and Use Suggestions boxes, but when I open the project again they are checked. I don't want to use that locator, I want to use my own local - more accurate composite locator as the default. It would be nice if I could right click on the locator and remove it, but that option is greyed out for this locator.
Is it possible? Or should I continue to use ArcMap? I like being able to have two separate maps open for the same function.
