The following video demonstrates how to add a Bing map to a marketing piece.
To Add a Bing Map to your marketing piece first, click on the Add button in the Main Tools section of the editing toolbar. Then select the Add Bing Map button. A new Bing Map will be inserted just like an Image Box into your marketing piece.
To customize your new Bing Map, update the address in the Address Box in the Map Editing Tools section of the editing toolbar that will appear when a Bing Map is selected and then click Update Address.
Your new Bing Map can be edited further (Resized,Moved,Rotated, etc.) before or after Updating the Address.
To delete a Bing Map, select the Bing Map you wish to remove. Click on the Remove Map button in the Map Editing Tools section of the editing toolbar.
To update the Bing Map with your desired location, update the address in the Address Box in the Map Editing Toolssection of the editing toolbar that will appear when a Bing Map is selected.
Enter in an exact address to center the map on a single location. You may also enter in landmarks or other geographical markers to create your map, and then click Update Address.
To Move, select your Bing Map and place your cursor over the map until the cursor changes from a pointer to a 4-directional arrow. Click the map, drag and drop it to the new location on the marketing piece.
To Resize, select your Bing Map and grab one of the map's four corner points. You can change the height, width, or overall size of the Bing Map by dragging and dropping any one of the four corner points.
To Rotate a Bing Map, select your Bing Map and simply move your cursor over the green circle located on the top of your Bing Map. Your cursor will change shapes from an arrow to a round arrow. You can then click and drag the circle to rotate your Bing Map around a central pivot point.
To change the Map Type, select your Bing Map and click on the Map Type button in the Map Editing Tools section of the editing toolbar. Four map types are available.
Roadmap is the default Map Type setting. This Bing Map displays an outline of streets and major geological features. It is easy to read and great for showing location for directions on your marketing piece.
Satellite displays a Bing Map with birds-eye satellite images of your selected location.
Terrain displays a relief map for a 3D representation of an area's terrain. Terrain maps are not available for all areas and are primarily useful in hilly areas.
The Hybrid map type combines the Roadmap and Satellite Map Types. The Roadmap names and road outlines are overlaid on the Satellite images.
To increase or decrease the level of Zoom on a Bing Map, select the Bing Map you wish to modify. In the Map Editing Tools section of the editing toolbar, grab the Zoom slide bar and move it to the left to Zoom Out. Move the Zoomslide bar to the right to Zoom In. The map will always be centered on the current Address that was used to create theBing Map.
A Label is automatically added to a Bing Map when it is created in a marketing piece. This Label pinpoints the address, landmark or location that created the map.
To remove the Label, click on the Label Settings button in the Map Editing Tools section of the editing toolbar. Then deselect the Show Label Box.
