Configure Vector Basemaps requires at least one Basemap Layer
Use this drop-down menu to select a MAP View containing at least one Vector Basemap layer to configure the current styling. In the MAP Views panel, Vector Basemap layers can be distinguished from regular MAP Layers by their icons:
Found in the Action drop–down menu, the Edit Action lists the stylesheets used to style basemap layers. The stylesheet feature type is indicated by the stylesheet icon colour:
With a stylesheet highlighted, click the Edit button to open the Edit Stylesheet Theme dialog for the selected stylesheet. In the Edit Stylesheet Theme dialog, highlight any of the existing rules to view or edit the Rule Expression, and/or Visual Properties. Once the desired edits have been made, click OK to save the changes.
Once all stylesheet edits are complete, select the Save Action and click OK on the Configure Vector Basemaps dialog window. Within the Save Basemap Style As dialog box, name the custom stylesheet template and click Save.
Basemap styles are saved as Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files in the following directories:
Windows: C:\ProgramData\Avenza\MAPublisher\Custom Basemap Styles
MacOS: /Applications/Avenza/MAPublisher 11.2/MAPublisher Plug-in/Custom Basemap Styles
Saved basemap styles can be accessed in the Import Vector Basemaps dialog or in the Configure Vector Basemaps dialog.
Apply New Basemap Stylesheets
In the Configure Vector Basemaps dialog select the Apply New Basemap Stylesheets Action. From this drop-down, basic (default) and saved custom basemap style templates can be selected. Once a Basemap Style has been chosen, click OK to apply it to the existing basemap layers in the chosen MAP View.
