add more street names RRS feed

  • Question

  • When zooming out to see more of the area I loose a lot of the side street names can I add the names to the streets? and when using text box can I rotate the box sideways?

  • Text boxes have to remain orthogonal with the screen (no rotation), and their sizes are defined in pixels. Ie. as you zoom in/out, their apparent size on the map will change. They are only really useful for adding annotation at a single zoom level - eg. for presentation purposes.

  • One thought might be to try increasing the font size for the map window
