  1. Move map with arrow keys

    It's in the title! It's annoying to select the hand icon each time you want to move

  7. Problem: Not saving changes

    Scribble maps (on iPad) is not saving my changes. Every time I go back, it is pulling up a map that has been changed many times. I have it on auto save, but it still doesn't work.

  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...

  10. Label appears on hover

    I'd like there to be an option that makes it so the information in the description only appears when your mouse is hovering over the marker. I have students use this program for assignments and it is a wonderful program, but when they add the descriptions to various locations and then zoom out you can't see the markers or where places are. All you see is all the bubble descriptions.

  11. See the distance of a selected point on a line after it is completed. (see runningmaps.com)

    I was going to add distance markers for some race maps but when I hover over the line I am only shown the total distance of the line. How can I add distance markers without retracing the line or inserting them as I draw the line?

  16. Toggle fullscreen indicator?

    Please, please give the embed code an appropriate signal for the users to toggle full screen! That's the only thing which still makes me hesitate to use it once and for all. The simple square at the top right corner is nice, yes. But it's not always about design only. A lot of my friends and visitors don't see it and complain about having to scroll a too small screen. I thought about a small text link at the bottom of the legend or anything similar...thx a lot and keep up the great work!

    I think part of the problem is that the icon we use for full screen is not really a standard full-screen icon. Also the widget default to a javascript version which does not have fullscreen capability if the user doesn’t have flash or a flash enabled device. Hopefully in the near future I will be roll out a series of updates to the widget that will address some of these issues.

  17. Allow for image uploads to 'Create Markers' instead of just asking for the URL

    We are actually working on this, not only do we want to provide the ability to upload images but also when you upload a custom marker when logged in it will be associated with your account so you can use it every time.

  20. Add Multi-layer Select

    Customer feedback: "I like the service, but I find issues annoying like (no multi select of layers for moving/organizing in folders). Slow/unresponsive dragging of layers is a similar issue."
