    Possible to make imported custom symbols persistent?

    Hi all,

    I import a handful of custom symbols to MapPoint when making geocaching maps. It works great. But when I close MP and reopen it, the custom symbols are gone and I have to re-import them time and time again. This is a colossal waste of time.

    Is there any way to make imported custom symbols persistent?

    Thanks,
    Oy.

    Another option is to
    1) import your custom symbols
    2) save the map as a TEMPLATE, perhaps overriding the default template that mappoint initially loads. (i.e. c:\program files\microsoft mappoint\templates\new north american map.ptt)

    Or you can save the template as a new file, and then open that particular template by specifying it as a parameter to MapPoint.EXE.
