The Print Layout View

The Print Layout View

The Print Layout view provides a powerful way to view, modify, print, and export maps.

Run ENVI in 32-bit mode from the Windows Start menu before performing these steps. This option is available on Windows platforms with a licensed ArcGIS® installation.

From the menu bar, select File > Print.

By default, the Print Layout view is displayed in the ArcMap™ Normal template (Normal.mxt). You can change the Default Map Template and/or the Map Template Directory Printing preferences. You can also apply existing templates (.mxt) using the Map Template button. Use ArcMap software to create, edit, and save templates. For more information on setting preferences, see Printing Preferences. For more information on templates and the Normal.mxt template, see the ArcGIS Help.

The Print Layout view currently supports datasets with the following types of georeferencing:

  • Geographic coordinate systems
  • Projected coordinate systems
  • RPC coefficients

Images with any other types of georeferencing (RSM, affine map transformations kx/ky, pseudo projections, x/y start) files are not supported in the Print Layout view. Metaspatial tiled files, pixel-based annotation files (.anz) and all annotation files .ann are not supported in the Print Layout view. If sending data to the Print Layout view does not produce desirable results, it is recommended you use the Chip View to Print option.

Print

Print

Send the Print Layout view to a printer or plotter. There are a number of customizable options. For detailed information on each option or field in the Print dialog, right-click on an option or field in the dialog and choose What's This?.

Export

Export

Save the Print Layout view to an image or graphic interchange file type. Each export type contains customizable options. Click the Options drop-down arrow at the bottom of the Export Map dialog to expand/contract the Options pane. Right-click on the field names in the Options pane and select What's This? to access more information about each option. The supported export types follow:

  • Windows Enhanced Metafile (.emf) - Can contain vector and raster data. Useful in Windows documents because the vectors can be resized without compromising quality. No support for font embedding and exclusively a Windows format.
  • Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) - Uses PostScript, the publishing industry standard for print-ready documents. Can be inserted as a graphic in most page layout applications and can be edited in many drawing applications. Supports embedding of fonts (users without Esri® fonts can still view symbology). Colors can be defined in CMYK or RGB.
  • Adobe Illustrator Vector Graphic (.ai) - Best format for post-processing in Adobe Illustrator. Preserves most layers but does not support font embedding. Colors can be defined in CMYK or RGB.
  • Portable Document Format (.pdf) - Designed for distribution because they are consistently viewable and printable across different platforms. Editable in many graphics applications and retain annotation, labeling, and attribute data for map layers. Supports embedding of fonts. Colors can be defined in CMYK or RGB.

 

 

  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg or svgz for compressed files) - Web-ready XML-based file format. Can contain vector and raster data. World Wide Web Consortium selection for standard vector web format. Supports font embedding. Compressed files can be created which results in the file extension changing to .svgz.
  • Bitmap (.bmp) - Windows native raster image format commonly inserted as graphics in a variety of document types. Can store pixel data at several bit depths. Can be compressed using the lossless RLE method but are generally much larger that JPEG or PNG files. Vector files do not resize well (they lose quality).
  • JPEG (.jpg) - Web-ready compressed image file commonly inserted as graphics in a variety of document types. Because JPEG files use a lossy compression algorithm, they are not the best option for vectors, text, or symbology (PNG and GIF provide better vector support). Support 24-bit color.
  • Portable Network Graphics (.png) - Web-ready compressed raster format (usually smaller file size than GIF). Uses a lossless compression and supports 24-bit color and transparency.
  • Tagged Image File Format (.tif) - Versatile raster format (but not viewable by a web browser). Can store pixel data at several bit depths. Can be compressed with lossy or lossless compression. Best choice for importing into cross-platform image editing applications.
  • Graphics Interchange Format (.gif) - Web-ready standard raster format. Lossless RLE or LZW compression results in small file size. Supports transparency and 8 bits per pixel (256 colors). The limited color support means there is some color limitation for maps that contain continuous raster data.

Editing Text, Graphics, and Objects in the Print Layout View


Using the Select Elements toolbar button, click to select text, graphics, and objects in the Print Layout view and move them, delete them, or resize them (text cannot be resized). Text can be modified by double-clicking on the text field then typing the text into the provided dialog. Legend Properties can be modified by double-clicking on the legend. For detailed information on each option or field in the Legend Properties dialog, right-click on an option in the dialog and choose What's This?.

Select an element and:

  • Press the Delete key to delete it.
  • Click and drag a corner to resize it. Text cannot be resized. If the map, data frame, or scale bar is enlarged or reduced, the scale bar will remain correct.
  • Click on the element and drag it to move it.
