Because the Java Edition of Autodesk MapGuide Viewer is based on Java technology, you have the flexibility of viewing maps on platforms other than Windows, but some features do not work the same way as they do using the Plug-In or ActiveX Control versions of Autodesk MapGuide Viewer. The following traits are unique to the Java Edition.
Before you print, you must enter the size of the page to print in the Page Setup dialog box.
You can click the Print Test Page button to print a sample page that shows rectangles of different sizes to determine the best printing size. You then enter these dimensions in the Page Dimension text boxes in the Page Setup dialog box.
If you are using the Plug-In and/or ActiveX Control in addition to the Java Edition, and you have created bookmarks for the Plug-In or ActiveX Control, you cannot access those bookmarks with the Java Edition.
Java provides no mechanism for copying maps to the Clipboard. Thus, the Copy > Copy command does not appear in the popup menu, and the Copy button does not appear on the toolbar.
Depending on your system, the quality of the colors displayed may vary.
The Java Edition will recognize changes you make to your Regional Settings or Input Locales for your system, as long as you use the default options. If you customize the number, time, date, or currency options, however, the Java Edition will not recognize them.
If you are using the Java Edition of Autodesk MapGuide Viewer with Internet Explorer and you click outside any Autodesk MapGuide Viewer dialog box, the dialog box will go behind the Internet Explorer window.
