  2. import Google Earth KMZ files

    Importing GE KLM files is not enough, you are limiting your great application without GE KMZ import capability, so please implement it asap

    You can accomplish this by saving in GE as a KML. I admit this should be possible, we implemented it (sort of) in pro, but the entire file upload functionality and rendering needs to be improved. This will more then likely come after our next major release.

  3. Text Marker Options

    When importing data and using the text marker option, add the ability to change the text format. ie. text size, color and be able to also load without the bubble around the text.

  4. add map navigation using the pc keyboard.

    When trying to draw an object that extends beyond the screen, the ability to move the map with the arrow keys, or zoom with page up and down would be especially helpful. Currently the only option is to end the line, scroll the map, and continue where you previously left off.

  6. Add a terrain profile tool based on 2 or more points defined by user

    The user would click sequentially the points along his polyline in order to generate a terrain profile

  7. make it possible to increase the transparency of images

    When you insert an image overlay, you cant see through it to the map. Thus, it would be helpful to be able to increase the transparency of the image to see the map through it

  9. add an import specification/template saving feature to ease importing of standardized xls frequently

    When you import xls files frequently (I do draw arrows between pairs of points) it would be helpful to have an option to save import specification (which rows go for header, which go for latitude/longitude, marker settings, etc.)

  13. The advanced editing for editing text is nonfunctional

    Everything in the advanced editing does not work. Not even one part of it works. Text remains black no matter what colour you change to. The default size and fonts are permanent. The whole thing is broken.

  14. show scale better

    would be great to have some way to tell the fixed scale (1:50,000 / 1:20,000 / 1:250,000 etc.) you are viewing at. The is 2000ft scale at the bottom left is good, but you actually have to measure the _ and then do the math if you want a ratio. Equivalent altitude (like GE) would be another option, but I think a fixed ratio option, perhaps with toggles so you can zoom on 1:20k, 1:50k, 1:250k, etc. automatically would be a better way to do it.

    Thanks.

  16. make zooming with the mouse wheel, zoom into where the mouse points to.

    Right now it is zooming into the center of the screen.
    And it is hard to do, always to center what you want to get to.

  17. Adding a new anchor between other anchors on the line using the pen tool

    Like the Add Anchor Point Tool in Illustrator it would be good to add anchor point anywhere on the pen tool line. Thanks again for making such a great program.

  18. When importing a spreadsheet, allow for appointing line start/end points

    At the present all the points imported from a spreadsheet are connected with one polyline.
    It would be useful if a user could group points which should be connected by lines.
    Example: I need to load a sheet containing 4 lines connecting 4 pairs of points. At the present if I load such a list of 8 points - they are just connected with one polyline instead of creating 4 separate single lines.

  19. Support for larger kml, and shp file upload

    Now it seems to be 5MB for KML files and that's a really small map I think.

  20. colored text

    When I change colors in text, and select the save button, it automatically goes back to black. I would love to be able to save the text colors easily!
