Right click on the top level Current Workspace in the Overlay Control Center to see these options.
This option brings up a dialog to specify a file. This file will be automatically opened in the native windows application whenever the workspace is loaded.
This function is useful, for example, to open a word document or PDF that relates to the map data and is necessary every time the workspace is opened. The load window filters to common Text and HTML files, but any file that has a known program associated with it in Windows could be automatically opened with the workspace.
This option removes all layers that are currently marked as hidden (i.e. have their display check-box unchecked) .
This option hides (i.e. un-checks the display check-box for) all layers that are currently completely off of the main map view .
This option hides (i.e. un-checks the display check-box for) all layers whose bounds don't intersect the currently selected area feature(s). The area(s) need to be selected with the Digitizer or Feature Info tools before choosing this option.
This option hides (i.e. un-checks the display check-box for) all layers whose bounds intersect the currently selected area feature(s). The area(s) need to be selected with the Digitizer or Feature Info tools first.
The Overlay Control Center default order is to list layers in the order that they are drawn. The top layer in the list draws first , and is displayed below any subsequent layers that are drawn on the map.
Check this setting to reverse the order. With this setting selected the top layer in the Overlay Control Center list will be the one drawn 'on top' in the map display.
Layer order in the Overlay Control Center and map display is also impacted by the Vector Layer Ordering Configuration setting.
Layers that are visible (turned on with a check) and inside of the current map display extent will be highlighted in the Overlay Control Center.
This option displays a dialog to choose a method by which to reorder the maps in the list. The options includes sorting alphabetically, by resolution, or spatially sorting the maps.
- Layer Description (Ascending Alphabetical)
- Layer Description (Descending Alphabetical)
- Lowest Resolution to Highest Resolution
- Layer Type (Elevation, Then Raster and Vector)
- North -> South (West ->East Within Row)
- North -> South (East -> West Within Row)
- South -> North (West ->East Within Row)
- South -> North (East -> West Within Row)
- West -> East ( North -> South Within Row)
- West -> East ( South -> North Within Row)
- East -> West ( North -> South Within Row)
- East -> West( South -> North Within Row)
This will reverse the order of layers as they are listed in the Overlay Control Center. Depending on the vector display setting, the map display drawing order will also change.
This tool will search layers by name. Enter a value in the box, then press Search to find layers matching that value. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the matching layers, or check the Select All option prior to searching to automatically select the found layers in the Control Center.
Create a New Feature Template Layer...
This option creates a new empty feature template layer. Feature Templates can constrain the allowed values for attributes and require values for attributes. For more information see Feature Templates.
