Alert Circle

 

Is it only me? On EPE's map screen, most of the time whenever I try to drag to move the red marker to change position or coordinates, this green "alert circle" pops up which would force you to cancel and start all over again. You tend to lose your work if you don't save after each entry when you are trying to add a poi or modifying the coordinates. I don't know if it's just my wireless mouse, EPE's bug, or something else.

I tried to duplicate the same problem. When I move the red marker to the new location and then click grab.The new coordinates are now showing.

Not Really a Problem?

Ok, so I tried to ignore the sometimes multiple alert circles created, click grab when satisfied with the coordinates, close EPE and save the file. When I opened the file and check the entry, the coordinates changed to where I intended. I was under the impression that by ignoring the alert circles, it would create proximity alerts which I don't intend to happen. I'm not familiar with these alert circles or circle lists and I don't use them anyway. Thanks for the feedback.

alert circles

I wish I knew more about how and why alert circles work, but it is my impression that when working with a .csv file, the green alert circles that appear when trying to adjust the position of the pointer on the map is irrelevant. They appear to harmlessly go away for me when using that file format. I assume this is entirely different if you are working with a .gpx. There may be an Alert Circle 101 link somewhere here, but I haven't found it yet.

I would make sure you have

I would make sure you have the most current version. There was an update that went out a few months back because Google Maps changed something. I believe it is v5.99 now. See the below topic on this from earlier.

About the Green Alert Circles

When your in edit mode of EPE, and you "click" on the map, a Green circle will show up. If that happens, you can disregard that UNLESS you click on the Grab button that you will find under "Circle List". That will be found in the lower right hand side. Also note, that if you do, you can still Delete the circle(s) by using the delete button found in the same area. But only if you "Grab" the circles you created. If you do not grab the information, it will NOT be saved.

Just something to mention.

As charles45 mentioned about ventenfjell's post 3 years ago regarding circle lists and bearings, I do remember this topic. However, as I previously stated, I've never experimented nor tried using it. It's only now that I have bothered dealing with it since it kind of annoying to me seeing these green markers and circles that I'm not really interested in. Based on your instructions, it seems to be working. Thanks to you and others for your time and feedback.

Alert circles

Hi everyone,

Yes, with latest update from Google Maps I had to make Alert Circles appear on Click as opposed to using a Right Click menu.

Here's what you can do:

Drag the POI by clicking on it and maintain the click until at desired destination. This still works.

Alternative: Simply Right Click at the new location. This till automatically move the POI to the new destination.

If by mistake you click somewhere else in the map, it will add a new Alert Circle. That's a bummer but you can ignore it if you are not using Alert Circles. Please note that the Coordinate GRAB button at the top will only grab the POI coordinates. The Alert Circles will not be saved. So just ignore them.

If you ARE using Alert Circles, then you need to Cancel and restart the Edit POI. To grab the new Alert Circle coordinated, you have to click the GRAB button at the bottom right in the Alert Circle dialog.

Hope this helps.

I should read first
