Tips & Tricks for a better Map Creator Experience (Part 2)

Hello Mappers,


This week we would like to give you some tips to improve your work in Map Creator:


  1. Highlight the entire street name
  • Press <Alt> and click on a link
  • All links with the same name (that are in view) will be highlighted and can be modified simultaneously
  • If you modify in one go, all the attributes that differ along the highlighted links will receive a warning message to avoid an override


  • If you want you can also use either, Left Mouse button and <Shift> to select multiple links at the same time or draw a rectangle with the Left Mouse Button and <Shift> pressed. (as in the image below)



  1. Altering Transparency
  • Press <Ctrl> and <Alt> at the same time and  – /+  to change the transparency of the roads



  1. Search by coordinates
  • Include or copy and paste Lat / Long information into the search field
  • When copying coordinates from other platforms always use a (.) or (/) or (,) as separator between degrees and minutes of the unit



  1. Search by Object ID
  • Enter poi-id: XXXX for Places (points of interest)
  • Enter link-id: XXXX for Roads
  • Enter pa-id: XXXX for Point Addresses
  • Enter job-id: XXXX for Map Alerts



  1. Places Expander
  • Move the mouse over the Places stack icon to activate a drop-down list with all Places located in the same location
  • Places can then be individually selected
