    After saving a placemark with custom icons from Google Earth and then importing them into Avenza Maps, many, but not all, have colors different from the originals. The icons in ~Library/Application Support/Google Earth are the correct color. Is this a bug, or did I do something wrong?

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your post! Are you using the app on an iOS or an Android device? If you are using Google Earths preset icons (ie pins), it’s possible that they are being exported with the ARGB color scheme which is not officially supported in the app on certain devices. I would need to see the pins and gather a bit more information about your specific device to ultimately determine a solution. Do you mind sending the placemark file, your device type and OS version, and a bit more detail on your workflow in creating your icons via the Support Centre form?

    Please let me know!

    All the best,

    Thanks, Andrea,
    Sorry… Turns out that I had too many icons from too many GE kmz files. Once I cleaned things up a bit, everything worked as it should.
    Thanks for the reply.
