Tool Behavior

The Tool Behavior page in Manager contains settings that define how the Identify, Buffer and Measurement Tools operate in each interface type of the HTML5 Viewer. In addition to controlling which layers are affected by the Identify tool, you can set the projection ID and default units to use for buffering and measuring distances and areas. It is also possible to set the type of calculation to use for measurement, and select whether or not to add the markup to the map automatically, or to enable prediction.

For information about configuring the toolbar for a viewer, see Toolbar.
