How to change the marker symbol

After changing the design of the marker text, it's time to take care of the marker symbol. You can change the icon, its size and color. You can also place a number or character in certain symbols.

To change the icon, click on the Symbol picker at the left. Click on the first symbol to remove a symbol altogether. The marker text will then center itself where the symbol was:

You can add one character or one number to your marker symbol if you chose any of the 2nd to the 7th icon. Play around to see which icons allow to add a text and which won't. 

To change the scale of the symbol, click on "more options" and then play around with the Scale bar at the bottom.


How to change the text position relative to the marker symbol

There are three ways to change where the marker text sits relative to the marker symbol. The easiest one is to change the alignment. To do so, click on the little paragraph icons around the circle in the "Alignment" option. The circle represents your marker symbol. Clicking on the different paragraph symbols sets the alignment relative to the marker symbol:

You can also change the distance between text and marker. To do so, change the values on the right of the Alignment panel.

👉 You can change the distance between text and symbol directly in the map. Simply drag the marker text to your desired position:

To add an arrow or line between your marker symbol and marker text, select the option "Draw line between marker and marker text", like so:

Dragging around the marker text directly in the map is helpful to add enough space between marker and marker text, as you can see in the GIF.

To make sure that the marker text doesn't get cut off from the map in the mobile version, keep the marker text further away from the border of the map than the marker.
