    Help request re: symbol sizing

    I would like to display small circles (up to one per US county) on a US map, then I will copy this map to powerpoint or other programs for use. I would like to make the symbols smaller. I know they change with zooming, but I can't zoom in enough to make them small while still retaining the ability to copy/paste the whole US map.

    I think a couple of solutions should be possible.
    1) Make the symbols smaller. I'm using the smallest one in mappoint, but it's not small enough. I tried importing, but mappoint made it too big. Maybe there's another way to do this?

    2) Fix the symbols to a particular distance-defined size and play with the size until I get one that will work for my needs. I don't know how to do this or if it is possible.

    I searched on the forums and didn't find an answer (I apologize if I missed it). Also, I know a fix may require coding (which I have done with other programs but not with mappoint), so if you respond with this kind of solution some details would be helpful.

    Help is appreciated .

    Hi,

    You can import and use your own symbols which can be the size you wants.

    Hi Wilfried, Joules, All interested

    Please try this:
    Download http://www.mattysconsulting.com/imag...s/counties.pdf
    There is a difference between symbol size and overall picture size when printing.
