Turn layers off?

Nov 12, 2010 at 12:51 AM

Here's a dumb do I turn off layers that I turned on via the BruTile toolbar?

Go in layers, switch off the maps you added.

There is another problem though... if I make a page first, then add BruTile maps, the maps don't zoom in.

what do you mean with 'page'?

To reproduce:

  1. Open ArcMap OR Use menu File->New... if already open
  2. Any format will do, but let's choose A2 landscape
  3. To add a frame of reference, add a basic map layer. I use world\background\continent_ln.sdc (it's really just the land/sea borders)
  4. Add a Google Maps road layer
  5. Zoom in on a city (I choose Singapore, since this is where I reside).
  6. Now all I get is the global level Google Maps, very blurry and close-up.

Tried adding the whole world.lyr, but it seems to have the same effect.

thanks, i can reproduce this as follows (ArcGIS 10):

1. Open ArcMap

2. Click menu View -> Design View

3. Add an ArcBruTile layer

4. Zoomin

I guess this has something to do with no printing support for custom layers.

Alright, to mystify (or de-mystify, I do not really know) this a bit:

- The map zooms in properly (increasing level of detail) if I Shift + Mouse Wheel.

- If I use only Mouse Wheel (w/o holding the shift key, it just zooms in on the cached image.

Also, to add to this: It is not possible to print/export the map - it just exports/prints any markers I placed on the map, w/o the underlying OSM.

- The Mouse wheel behaviour is default, mouse wheel zooms in on the complete layout, shift mouse wheel zooms on only the map

thanks for the hint

- no printing/export: this is a known arcmap issue NIM044493:  Cannot print a custom layer with custom renderer.
