    Hi, Is there any way that the imported placemarks can pick up or be assigned a name from a field in the imported file? I have a pro subscription so I can import shapefiles and kml files.

    I have lots of plant species records (points) that all import fine (in small numbers, large files tend to make avenza slow down or crash).
    The trouble is they are all ‘blank’ in the name field, although the needed tag is down in the attribute table.

    Hi,
    Thank you for posting to the Avenza Maps Forum. It is not possible for place-mark names to automatically be assigned existing field names or field values. If you would like us to take a closer look at your data set, please contact support@avenza.com

    Thank you for the additional information. If you can please reach out to us via help.avenzamaps.com with additional details (screenshots of what you are seeing vs. what you are wanting), it will help us ensure that this is filed with our developers correctly so that they can review it and hopefully implement this in a future release!
