INSERT A MAP - ver 2.6.6

  1. Basics
  2. Pan and zoom


The MAPS feature lets you use the built-in mapping functionality on your iPad to generate a map and paste it into your screen image.

You can adjust the size of the map, it's magnification in the MAP BOX and position on screen prior to pasting.

Tap the MAPS button (1) and the MAPS TOOLBAR (2) appears, along with a MAP BOX (3).

You can type in an address (4) and tap the GO button (5) and a map is generated in the MAP BOX (3).

Or you could tap the FIND ME button (6) to generate a map of your vicinity. The iPad location services must be enabled (pin iPad Settings) to use this feature.

Tap (7) repeatedly to cycle through the different map types viz. STANDARD, SATELLITE, HYBRID and TERRAIN.

The buttons in (8) displays the MAP BOX in different preset sizes. You could also adjust the size and position of the MAP BOX by dragging the ARROWHEAD HANDLES (10) or moved by dragging the DOT HANDLES (11).

You can also adjust the map within the MAP BOX as described below in the note on "Pan and zoom" the map below, to adjust the magnification of the map and scrolling within the MAP BOX.

Finally, once you have the desired map, sized and positioned, remember to PASTE (9) it to your screen image.

Pan and zoom

When a map is first generated in the MAP BOX, you can "pan" the map within the box. Simply drag with your finger in the MAP BOX.

Note that if you have tapped OUTSIDE the MAP BOX (or touched any screen area OUTSIDE the MAP BOX), the map is "frozen" in the MAP BOX and if you drag with your finger, you would be dragging the MAP BOX rather than panning the map in the MAP BOX. If you wish to restore panning, DOUBLE TAP IN the MAP BOX.

Tap OUTSIDE the MAP BOX to freeze the map and disable panning. DOUBLE TAP INSIDE the MAP BOX to restore panning (and zooming).

As described above, if you drag the map with your finger (assuming panning is enabled), you would be panning the map within the MAP BOX. if you use your thumb and forefinger and apply a pinching action INSIDE the MAP BOX, the map would zoom accordingly.

If you find that you are unable to pan or zoom as described here, you may have indadvertedly touched the screen outside the MAP BOX. This would have "frozen" the map. DOUBLE TAP INSIDE the MAP BOX to re-enable panning and zooming.

Remember to PASTE the map to add it to your screen image by tapping the PASTE button (2).
