Features of the Event Editor
Event Editor is a web app for adding, selecting, and editing linear referenced event data. Notable features include route searching, attribute set-based route attribution, quality control of events checks, event data query, creating and saving bookmarks, saving and deleting web maps, and event editing and route redlining.
The Event Editor layout includes a ribbon toolbar, widgets, results grid, and floating windows.
Quick Access toolbar buttons
A Quick Access toolbar appears on the Event Editor title bar in all views. Use these buttons to navigate the map, zoom in and out, save an edit session, undo and redo edits, or to discard an edit session.
The ribbon toolbar docks at the top of the editor. It has three tabs, and each tab is divided into groups.

Adds and edits redlines
After clicking a menu and selecting a widget, the widget opens. Most of the widgets dock on the left side of the page.
After opening the widget, you can expand or contract the widget to a different size that persists across all sessions.
To minimize the widget, click the left-facing arrow. To close the widget, click the x on the top right.
After running many widgets (Select Events, QC), a results grid opens containing event results. By default, the results grid opens at the bottom of the page; however, this is configurable. You can directly edit event records in the results grid. The results grid contains four tools that can help you edit event data: Zoom To (selected events), Select All, Save Changes, and Calculate Field.
Similar to widgets, you can expand and contract the results grid to a different size that persists across all sessions.
To minimize the results grid, click the down-facing arrow (similar to widgets).
