Network map label type
« on: January 09, 2013, 06:09:23 pm »
Hi,

A small thing I've noticed in using network maps is that selecting a different label type via "Display objects as..." is stored locally, so a different user on a different machine may see objects on a map by their icon rather than e.g. small labels.

Problem with this is, in our setup, that the icons are a tad large, and the text below is unreadable due to the map background. Also the placement on our maps is done according to the small label display type.

Would it be possible to have a "Default label type" property or such on the map properties, where you could select how the objects are shown on the map for all users? To not break with current functionality, you could add a "let user select" option that uses the current locally stored setting.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
bdefloo

Hi!

I agree that this is needed. I'm thinking of adding "default icon type" option to "Map Options" property page for map object. Issue in bug tracker to track: https://www.radensolutions.com/chiliproject/issues/204.

Best regards,
Victor
