    I’m uploading a square image for a new marker and I set the size to 80×80….but no matter what it shows the icon as 40px. I try to remove it and put it back but it still shows 40px. Anything I missed or is there anything to change the size?
    Thanks

    Hi!

    Have you tried changing the “Custom Map Marker Image Size” setting below?

    Cheers!

    I did actually. I set it to 80×80 and it doesn’t show:/

    Interesting because with firebug mine is 40×40:/ Does it resize with the screen size too? I’m on a macbook pro so may be the size is smaller? But let’s say I want to use an even bigger image than 80×80 like 100×100, Is there a way to do that? Thank you for checking though. I don’t know why mine is different.

    Hey!

    Yes, it stays the same size regardless the window size (http://i.imgur.com/MJgYZTm.png), and no, the maximum size is 80×80 right now.

    Here is an up-vote for making an option to have larger images than 80×80. We have a client who has a landscape style logo that looks absolutely terrible at 80 pixels. It is way too squished at 80 pixels and is not legible. They wanted a pointer on Google Maps. We know how to do this through conventional coding and thought about tackling it with our own IFRAME showing a static page underneath an Enfold page.

    Is there a workaround by diving into the Enfold code? We don’t mind messing with code. Point us to the appropriate page.

    I would think something on the order of a max size of 250px (x) 250px + would be a better resolution for an image. $00.02 What we do is use a transparent PNG with an arrow that takes up a portion of the image. The remaining image canvas uses a logo. The transparency behind the arrow prevents the city and street location from being covered up with an image. It works quite nicely and allows you to see the exact location on the map while also offering up enough real estate and resolution for a quality, offset rendered business logo. You should pass this design idea to Kriesi or your content designers. It really works well if you make the arrow thin and precise. If you make it wavy and curved, it looks even better than the boring straight arrows. All we have ever received from a customer is compliments when doing this. They like their logo spiffy and visible on a map. It makes it look official and like it’s their own map and not Google’s.

    Hey!

    You could definitely dig into the shortcode element and modify it as you want. Its the same thing I did on our documentation site for the magazine element: https://github.com/DevinVinson/enfold-child-docs

    Hi there, I had the same problem with the icon size and I think I understood where is the problem: the size of the browsers’s window must be 100% in order to show the correct size of the marker, otherwise you’ll see it smaller. In my case, the window is at 120% and I see the icon 20*20, but if I zoom out to 100% and refresh the page the icon is properly shown at 80*80
