    Smile Size of Pushpins

    Hi All

    Please could you tell me if, and how to alter the size of some of the pushpins from 2006 files. I run 2009 with the customisation listed here on earlier threads. Some of the pins are too big when maps are zoomed out.


    I do not currently do any background programming so may need simple method

    Many thanks

    Steve

    Re: Size of Pushpins

    Do you have the same problem with MapPoint 2006?

    I think you would have to create custom pushpins that are smaller and change the pushpins or datasets to your new smaller custom pushpin.

    This should not require programming but would require some graphics skills.

    Can you post screenshots and/or your PTM files zipped up?

    Hi Eric

    Please find attached screen shot.

    I never had the problem before as number of data sets was managable but as you can see the "H" icons are overpowering.

    I have some graphics skills but would need guidance on sixe needed and how to incorporat a custom pin.

    Many thanks

    Re: Size of Pushpins

    What did the same thing look like with MapPoint 2006?

    Rather than do a custom pushpin, could you just pick a smaller pushpin for those locations? Are they all one dataset on the legend so you can change them all at the same time?

    Hi Eric

    I never mapped this is 2006. They are in one layer so this will help with ammends. I would have used another pin but these are meant to be Hospitals so would like something like the one used for explaining maps to other people.
