    I Want My MapPoint Icons Back!

    clip_image002Yeah, in MapPoint 2009 (and Streets & Trips 2009) we took out many of the colorful little pushpin icons included natively in previous releases of the product. We added the way cool "Import Custom Symbol" functionality, but for those of you who love our little caricatures there's just no love in the world. Correction - we love you. And, we've made the icons available for download on the Microsoft Download Center. So, go get them and be one with yourself.

    The world is right again.

    I've put a comment on the main blog, but there's a bit of spin here.

    Custom Pushpin Import was available in MapPoint 2006, and 2004, and 2002!

    That was my first reaction, too.. be a little honest here.

    But - maybe he's talking about Streets & Trips 2009? Did custom symbol import exist with S&T 2008?

    Yes, the functionality has always been present in Streets & Trips as well (I first started to use version 2003 of the product).
