Customize line selection symbology

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

In WebOffice 10.8 SP2 the symbology of selected lines is now fully configurable, both in WebOffice author standalone and ArcMap. The symbology of selected lines is changeable on multiple layers as simple line or line marker. This new adaption allows to insert 1 to n layers to the selection symbology, to improve the visibility of selected lines.

Open "Queries" in the menu "Edit Project" in WebOffice author standalone. Select a line layer and configure the node "Selection symbology" by right-clicking. You can choose between configuring "Line symbology" and "Line marker symbology".
