Managing markers

In the Markers Inspector, pop-up menus and action menus let you add, remove, modify, and organize markers and marker groups. To see the pop-up menus, point to the group name or marker name.

Manage marker groups

Action
Click to see the action menu and then:

Add a new marker to a group

Choose "New marker" where marker is the name of the group for standard groups (for example "New Task Priority") or the marker type (for example "New icon").Enter the name for the new marker and (for icon or color markers) select its icon or color.

Note: You can import resources from your address book - see Adding resources from your address book.

Add a new icon or tag group

Choose "New icon group" or "New tag group." Enter the new group's name, and then add markers to the group (described below).

Action
Point to the group name, click  and then:

Rename a group

Choose Rename; then enter the new group name.

Hint: If you don't want to display group names for tags choose View > Show & Hide and deselect Tag Group Names.

Make a group exclusive or non-exclusive

Choose "Make exclusive" or "Make non-exclusive." When a group is exclusive you can add only one icon from that group per topic. You cannot change this setting for some standard groups.

Sort a tags group

Choose Sort.

Delete a group

Choose Delete {group name}. You cannot delete some standard groups.

Any markers from the deleted group that are used on the map will remain on the map. In the Markers Inspector they are moved to the General Icons group as unnamed icons.

Manage individual markers

Action
Point to the marker name, click  and then:

Rename a marker

Choose Rename. Enter the new name for the marker. If you rename a tag that's used on the map, the tags on the map will change to reflect the new name.

When you rename a General Icon it automatically moves to the Single Icons group.

Modify a marker

Manage all markers

Action

The markers from the file will replace the current set of markers in the Inspector.

The available markers and their groupings are saved as part of the map (or Map Template).
