Tech Tip: Draw Tool Isn’t Showing

A few members have reported that the new MLS draw tool icon is not appearing when they bring up the “Display Map” search area. After testing and exploring the issue, we learned that some browsers are showing the old polygon icon rather than the new draw tool icon. The new draw tool looks like this:

If you see the old polygon tool instead, then you will need to clear the cache in your browser; this will resolve the issue quickly. For step-by-step instructions on how to clear your browser cache, please visit:

Map Search: New Draw Tool

Yesterday afternoon, we released an update to UtahRealEstate, upgrading the Polygon map tool with a new, easier to use Draw Tool.

With this tool, you no longer need to click individual points on the map. Instead, select the tool, then click and hold the mouse button while drawing on the map. Release the button to complete the selected area.

You can draw multiple areas on a map – a big advantage over the old polygon tool. If you wish to clear the map and start over, click on the map tool with the red X, which will clear the map without clearing the other search criteria. Also, as the new draw tool can draw any shape on the map, we have eliminated the rectangle tool. 

We also have a video that shows the basics of this new map tool. Note that the icon was changed to the pencil icon shown above: Map Search – Multi-Polygon Tool
