The Overlay tool allows reporting snippets (maps, text, images, etc) to be placed on top of one another.
An example use of this tool is to have a map image with a title across the top, a legend positioned on the bottom right and a logo on the bottom left.
Configure the tool
- Base Field: The base field is the main reporting snippet. Overlay fields will be placed on top of the Base field.
- Overlay Fields: Use the drop down lists in the desired positions where you would like to overlay other snippets.
- Specify the Padding (in.) in which the overlay objects will place relative to the Base field. Default is 0.5 inches from the top, bottom, left and right.
Padding (in.): expected behavior
If Default Distance Units is set to kilometers, this field is calculated in centimeters. See Localization.
- Include Source Fields in Output: when checked, will output all snippet fields. This box is unchecked, by default, outputting only the resulting Overlay snippet.
