    Hello, recently I exported a layer set from an iOS device (SHP file, Large Media Size), and imported to an Android device. The Placemarks on the iOS device were all different pin colours (Avenza default symbol set). One importing to the Android device, all pins were red. Can you explain how to preserver symbol colours when exporting? Thanks.


    Hello Jordan,

    Your symbols will be preserved if you export the layer from the iOS device as a KML and not a Shapefile as the Shapefile format does not have the ability to preserve symbology.

    Kind Regards,
