Print a story or briefing

Stories and briefings that have been authored in ArcGIS StoryMaps can be printed or saved as a PDF file. Printed outputs can be used in situations in which the ArcGIS StoryMaps website may not be available due to limited internet access. Printing and saving stories and briefings also creates a record of a story that can be used to track its history or for archival purposes.

Print or save your output

Use the following steps to print a story or save it as a PDF file:

  1. In the story builder or the story viewer, click the menu button More actions.
  2. Select Print preview.

    The story or briefing opens in the print view.

  3. Click the Print button to open the browser's print dialog box.
  4. Select a printer or other destination.
    1. To print a paper copy of the story, select a printer option.
    2. To save the output as a PDF file, select a print to PDF option.

The story or briefing is printed or saved.

Printing tips

Consider the following when printing stories and briefings:

  • Stories and briefings in both published and draft mode can be printed.
  • You can access the Print option from both the builder and viewer.
  • It is recommended that you enable background graphics in the browser print settings.
  • At this time, only 16 maps can be printed. If a story or briefing includes more than 16 maps, print it in batches using page ranges.
