Getting Started
Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll learn in the user guide:
Accessing Capturx for ArcGIS
• Open ArcGIS and activate the Capturx for ArcGIS Extension
- Tools/Extensions > Capturx for ArcGIS
• Next, add the toolbar. View > Toolbars > Capturx for ArcGIS Desktop
• Add data to your map and then add the Capturx Markup Layer (first button on toolbar).
• Switch to layout view, add a legend and print with Capturx (second button on toolbar).
- If the wrong printer is selected, go to File > Page and Print Setup.
• Now use the pen to create GIS data.
- By default, you are in redline/markup mode, in order to create a new feature (point,
line, or polygon) you touch the pen tip to the legend icon of that feature (this puts the
pen in ‘feature creation mode’) and then mark the map where you want the feature
to be placed. Once a feature is added to the map, the pen returns to ‘redline/markup
mode.’ See user guide for more details http://capturxArcGIS.adapx.com

The Capturx Pen Manager lets you do such things as:
