The Maps Suck.... I have a suggestion :)

    I've always found the maps visually clunky.  The map part itself isn't an issue, the problem comes once you've got (say) more than 1-2 items on the map.  I sometimes like to put lots of points on a map .... and often have to stop adding items as it hits the max limit of points.

    e.g. consider a Hub entitled "10 places to go in XYZ town", along with a handy map to demonstrate where they are. 

    All the addresses below take up too much room. 

    I propose that there be an additional map formatting option that enables a hub-writer to turn off/omit the address bars under the map and, instead, just make the placemarkers have an onMouseOver event / a ToolTip type of box.

      I'll second that.  I've had maps with many points on them to the point I had to quit because of the long string of addresses.  Unwanted, unneeded, but causing the reader to scroll way down to get to the next capsule.

      Just a rollover would usually be preferable to me.

    This is a great idea.  I'm not sure if it's possible, but I will ask at our next community meeting and let you know!    Have a good night!  smile

    I third this suggestions.  It's the reason I stopped using maps.

    Great idea.  It's the reason I don't use the map.

      I agree, it's a good idea.  The maps are not good!

    We talked about the Map Capsule in our meeting on Tuesday and I created a ticket for our engineers.  We all agreed that it would be a great improvement, but we have a lot of other pressing things that they are working on. I don't know how quickly it will happen, but it is in the queue!  smile

    Cheers.  They've been really annoying.  There are a lot of the modules that it'd be good to use ... if only they weren't so annoying smile

    I might list a suggestion for the tables too ..... smile
