If there is not enough space for the widget to be displayed on the right (for example, when viewing in portrait on a mobile device), it will appear o​n the bottom of the WebMAP.

If there is not enough space for the toolbar to display all of the widget buttons (for example, on a mobile device), the remaining widgets can be accessed using the "More" button, shown below.

To open a Toolbar Widget, click the "More" button to open a panel showing the remaining widgets.
