Run a Print in an HTML5 Viewer

Users run prints using the HTML5 Viewer's Print tool, which generates printable maps based on Geocortex print templates. Each of the HTML5 Viewer's built-in toolbar formats includes the Print tool by default. If you have removed the Print tool from the toolbar, you can add it back.

Print tool

Clicking the Print tool opens the Print Map panel, where the user selects the print template to run and configures other settings, such as the map scale and resolution to use for the print output. There may also be settings for arbitrary text inputs, for example, Title or Notes. These inputs are configured in the template using parameters. For information on configuring input parameters, see Configure Parameters.
