Geographic Adornments

NOTE: Due to performance related issues, this feature—Geographic Adornments—has been retired from v9.0.0 until these issues can be resolved. It still works in v8 in v8.0.4+

Content below is for information only and for v8 users.

A map adornment becomes a geographic adornment if all of the following are true:

The latitude and longitude may be set directly, or may be computed indirectly because $Address has been set. The scale of the map is determined by the adornment's $Range attribute, which represents the approximate size of the map in kilometres.

If a note that sits atop a geographic adornment has a latitude and longitude that lies within the adornment, it is moved so the note's centre lies on the corresponding place in the map. If the position is not on the map, the note is moved to the edge of the adornment. If a geographic adornment moves a note to a position that is already occupied, it will try to find a nearby place that is not occupied.

Geographic adornments can only draw maps up to about 8,000 pixels in size, which should be ample for most purposes.
