Improvement Ideas

If anonymous, please contact us at support@scribblemaps.com, or leave a contact email as well so we can discuss your idea. We DO try and implement all user suggestions if they are possible.

  1. allow users to turn off the continue-a-line feature

    I was trying to jot a note onto a map and found it impossible to do thanks to that feature where Scribble Maps thinks you always want to connect lines if they end/begin close together. I know I can add typed text, but really, just scribbling out a note is much easier. Please add a toggle so users can turn off that feature. Thanks!

  5. Dateline crossing/line disappears

    For some reason when I try to draw a line over the international dateline (over the Pacific Ocean), the line is interrupted or disappears when zooming out. Also, flightpaths between two cities (lets say Hong Kong and Los Angeles) cannot be drawn in one drag. Could this be fixed?

  6. Provide a tutorial on how to plan a spreadsheet and actually import and set it up and everything

    The only youtube tutorial was by the creator of scribble maps. While obviously he knows what he is talking about, as an educator, I can assure you he does not know how to teach others what he knows. There needs to be a step by step explanation of how to do things. In the video he mentions the spreadsheet feature that will allow spreadsheets to be imported. However it does not mention what sorts of details would need to be built into said spreadsheet to make it work in scribblemaps. As a spreadsheet wizard I was able to figure things…

    I 100% agree with you, this was literally the first video I have ever made explaining an application. However, when I made it, it was by request it wasn’t so much a tutorial video, as it was a video showing off some of the features of Scribble Maps Pro. There is two solutions to this problem, the first is I can make another video with a more step by step approach, the other is that someone else can make the video and I can include it in scribble maps.

  8. Clarify projection and file size for uploading shapefiles.

    No matter what size or variety of projections, I simply cannot get my shape files to display. Some show up in the list, most do not make it out of the .zip file due to a "read me" file or some other file that is not allowed that is part of the GIS data file downloaded. VERY Frustrating...

  11. Need a color picker. Even MS Paint has this thing

    Need a color picker to be able to select the color of a line, shape, etc., that is already drawn. Currently it's utterly impossible to replicate the color of a shape or line that is already drawn on the map. There is no way to see the Html code of the the line's color, nor is there a color picker to select its color.

  12. Fix sidebar synchronization

    When I select an object in the map, the object is selected in the sidebar. But sidebar does not scroll to the object position, I have to find it manually.

  13. Remember User Settings

    Currently, when I use certain settings (i.e. Line width, color, text color), save a map and log back in later, all options are set back to the original Red line at 2pt. Can you make certain areas customizable so when ever I log back in to make updates to a map, I don't have to change default settings back to what I was using before?

  14. marker and drawings gallery

    It would be great to have galleries for saved markers and drawings. For example: you create a new map and do not have to create new markers and drawings from scratch; just load those that have been saved in ...maybe groups. Also you need to allow markers and drawings to be locked by option.

  15. Splines

    Any plans to add support for splines? Would enable faster and more accurate drawing of curved lines and shapes using fewer points.

  17. In pro mode, continue a pen tool line after loading file

    Reloading an existing file I can't seem to continue editing a line using the pen tool. Unless I am missing something you can't do this. Thanks for such a great program, if it had a bit more functionality I would pay to use it.

  19. Fix a bug. I find that when I zoom in to the max the task bar enlarges and hides the map navigation tools and i can't shrink it again to ge

    I find that when i zoom in to the max, the task bar expands off the screen hiding the navigation and zoom controls and I can't get them back.
    also, can you fix it so circles can be expanded from a centrepoint rather than a point on the circumference

    Currently we do all the billing through paypal and all information regarding your account can be discovered through the paypal account that was used.

    We will in the future be implementing a more robust account/billing system with more options other than paypal.
