    Custom pushpins

    Has anyone had success importing their own custom symbols? I'm trying to import, but once I do, MP seems to lose all the color data so my symbol looks like a blank. It's there, but doesn't show up. I am importing only bmps and have used their color chart as well. Any tips?

    This is the only thing I can think of so give it a try...

    The color of the top left pixel of an imported image is used as the transparency color
    On the Drawing toolbar, click the arrow next to Create Pushpin. This should bring up the dialog box to select the built-in and custom pushpins (or import new custom pushpins.)

    Now you should see your custom pushpin near the top. Right click on your pushpin and uncheck Transparency by clicking on it.
