How to Add Custom Markers to a Map

In the our previous version we had the ability to add a custom marker to Scribble Maps. We have now brought this same functionality to 2.0 and improved it.

Step 1: Select the marker tool and then click "add your own" (click image to enlarge)


Step 2: Copy and paste the URL of the marker into the text field. You can host markers on free services such as http://www.imgur.com. You can also now select the anchor point and this is particularly useful for things like paddles where you want the tip of the paddle to be anchored to a point as you zoom in and out.


Step 3: Finally click the Add To Map button then click where you want to place the marker. You can also adjust the rotation of the marker by using the control in the bottom right. Rotation is particularly useful for things like vehicles.

  1. I would like to be able to insert a link to a particular blog entry on individual markers. I have been intermittently successful in doing so, but most of the time it fails to link to the proper page and sometimes the saved text with the link disappears after I save the map. It seems to fail more often than it succeeds this way.

    Is there a way one could inset links to blog posts within the text of a marker description box?
