We are busy at work creating a new print tool for ArcFM for Silverlight

 

There are some cool improvements in the new tool, many based on your requests:

 

  • The print button appears along the top of the map next to other common map tools
  • You can choose a specific scale and adjust the extent for the plot in the print preview
  • The plot will have the exact map frame you see in the print preview
  • The plot is processed server-side using the page templates in your geodatabase and ArcGIS print services (custom print templates are no longer needed as with the old tool)
  • Asynchronous processing so you can continue working after starting the print process
  • High resolution output

 

We will be reviving the ArcFM for Silverlight product advisory group soon and giving a demo to interested folks.  Meanwhile we have a question for you:

 

With the shiny new Print tool coming out, do we need to keep the old Templates-Print tool in the app?

We would prefer to just make the old tool disappear when the new tool appears in the next release.

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
