    Hi--
      The new map capsule tool is a neat feature.  I've used it once before, and liked it--I've seen it on others' hubs, and liked it.

       However, on my most recent hub, I included a map capsule, and pinpointed 2 places.  The locations show up under the capsule in the boxes with the "A" and "B" tags, but for some reason the pins are not visible ON the map--no matter which view I choose.

        They are visible in edit mode, but once I am 'done editing,' they disappear again.  Is this a new glitch, or am I making some sort of error?

      Thanks...

      I have that problem too. sometimes i have the second thought of posting the hub because of wrong location pinned on the map.

    If this is for the Oregon Caves, the pins are visible.

      Hi, SteveoMc

      Ok, thank you...that is very interesting, indeed, because they are NOT visible to me unless I'm in edit mode!  Hmmm..

      But, I'm glad others can see them..thanks for verifying that!

    They show for me too, but green on green might not have been the best choice.

        You can see the pin markers clearly when you view it in 'map' mode.

            No, you're right, no color choices.

    I find that Firefox handles the map capsules quite well, but sometimes struggle to load photos, and will not allow me to play back videos, whereas Google Chrome will play videos and upload photos brilliantly, but has terrible problems with the map capsule.

    sorry - no real help, just adding to your store of knowledge big_smilebig_smilebig_smile

      Thanks, RedElf...

      Hmm.. interesting.  I have trouble uploading pix in IE, but Firefox handles it very well.  I've only just gotten Google Chrome, so don't have any real experience with it yet.
