    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.



    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
