Global Mapper v25.0

Importing KMLs - no point names

This should be simple but I can't figure it out. When I drag and drop a KML into my project, the <Placemark><name> is not pulled into the layer attributes. Is there a way of seeing this information in the attribute editor so I can add point labels?

    Can you provide a sample (either here or to geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com)? I would expect the <Name> field to become the display label of the feature. This would is a special 'attribute' that should still show in the Attribute Editor as the <Feature Label> field.

    Thanks,

  • It gets imported like this... no name info.


  • @bmg_mike Any update on this Mike?

    Can you provide a sample KML/KMZ file that demonstrates this issue? You may have to zip it up to attach it here.

    Thanks,
