export of layer maps as CSV/XLS/XLSX/ODS file
With this release, it is now also possible to export layer maps as CSV/XLS/XLSX/ODS file:
If you also want to import marker or layer maps via CSV/XLS/XLSX or ODS files, please upgrade to the pro version. Please see https://www.mapsmarker.com/import-export for more details and documentation about the import/export feature.
icons on marker maps and layer maps center icon on backend are now also draggable
Sascha reported a bug, saying that he can´t move the marker icons on backend pages. It turned out, that he wanted to intuitively drag the icon with the mouse and move it to the new position. Till v3.8.4, moving a marker icon to a new position on the map on the backend had to be done by mouse click – which I now see is not that intuitive to some people.
So I changed this now with pro v3.8.5: markers icons on marker maps and the layer center icon on layer maps are now also draggable by mouse (relocation via mouse click still works though).
