Map Options is a settings page available on the generated maps or forms within Surety and Surety Pro. It gives the ability to modify the colors of the border, the included labels, the color and size of the labels, as well as whether other layer styles appear within the selected or drawn boundary (Surety Pro only).

Where to find the Map Options
Turn On/Off the Selection's other layer styles
Change the color or the boundary
Modify the label properties (size, color)
Turn labels on/off

Accessing the Map Options settings

The Map Options menu is available in any form that contains a map.

First draw or select a border(s).
Note: if a boundary is not drawn or selected, Map Options is not available to use.

Image

Choose the map or form to generate.

Image

The default color of the border is yellow. The default color of the text is yellow with a grey outline.


To change the color size or visibility of the labels or color of the border, left click the Map Options button to the right of the map/form.

Image

Note: You must view your map as a webpage in order to see the Map Options button. See: Options Page

This will open up a Options window containing a number of different settings to change.

Image

Remove Selection Layer: The "Remove Selection Layer" is only available for Surety® Pro subscriptions. When this options is checked the system will look at which form layer the boundary was selected from and will hide that entire layer on the map.

Image

As an example we will select a boundary from the Chemical layer and create an FSA Map. The Chemical layer formatting will still be displayed on the FSA map with the "Remove Selection Layer" disabled.

Image

Click on Map Options and check the Remove Selection Layer. The map will reload and hide all of the boundaries and coloring assigned to the Chemical Layer since that is the boundary we had originally selected. If other forms were saved and displayed in this mapped area, such as an Invoice or Fertilizer Form, those boundaries would still be visible on the map (if those layers were enabled in the layers panel).

Image

Text size: This determines how large or small the acres (+ Field ID and Farm Name if in Surety Pro) label(s) show up on the map. The default setting is 8.

Image

Text Color: Click on the box to change the label color.

Image

Text Outline Color: Again, click on the color box to select the desired color of the outline of the text.

Image

Border Color: Change the color of the field border by clicking on this color box and selecting from a larger variety of colors.

Image

Show/Hide labels:

Finally, show or hide the different label types on your generated map by using the checkbox next to the appropriate label type.
Note: Field Id and Farm Name are only available to Surety Pro subscriptions See: Edit Borders

Image

Once you have the desired options set, click Save.

Image


Once save is pressed the map will reload after a couple seconds to show the desired settings.

Image

Reset the borders back to the original settings.

If you want to return the border to the original color and the text to the original color and size, simply open the Map Options up again and click the Restore Defaults button.
