What is the right size for my images in the editor?
It is possible to include images in the description of a marker or in a photo tab. Here are the ideal dimensions you should use to prevent your images from scrolling horizontally or vertically:
- Photo in a marker description: 355 x 130 pixels (larger images will scroll horizontally or/and vertically)
- Photo in a photo tab: 300 x 150 pixels (larger images will be resized to fit in this space - clicking on the image thumbnail opens the original full-size image)
- Icons: all icons should be placed in a transparent 32 x 32 image in PNG format.
How to center my map?
If your map needs to be centered on a specific geographical location, for instance a country like France:
- Use the Edit map > Map properties command from the menu.
- Enter the exact address in the Center Map Address text area, then click on Geocode to find the location's geographical coordinates.
- If you know the exact Latitude and Longitude, you can use them instead to define the central point for the map.
The coordinates are automatically filled in when you click on the Geocode button.
Is it possible to sort my markers in alphabetical order?
If you wan to sort your markers in alphabetical order:
- Right-click anywhere over the Marker List and select the Reorder markers option in the context menu.
- Click on the Title column header to sort markers in alphabetical order. Click again on the column header to invert the sorting order.
- You can also select an individual marker in the list and use the Top, Up, Down and Bottom buttons to change its position in the list.
How to edit an existing polygon in Click2Map?
To be able to change the shape of a polygon:
- Turn on drawing edition mode by checking the Drawing edition option in the option bar at the top right of the map area.
Clicking on a line or inside a polygon activates its control handle. There are two type of control handles:
- White handles: white handles can be moved to change the shape of the drawing.
- Transparent handles: transparent handles can be used to add new segments to the polygon.
It is thus possible to roughly outline a territory by positioning the white handles on the desired border and then use the intermediate handles to fine tune the outline. Each new segment can, in turn, be divided into two smaller ones.
