Title: Expand a whole map
Post by Paul Walters on Aug 5th, 2012, 9:47am

In this request I suggested a feature where individual notes would expand in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions to accommodate expanded text.

Now, I've another suggestion: expand a selected region of a map so that all notes and adornments move apart from one another proportionally.  In this case, I wouldn't want the notes or adornments to get larger - just farther apart.  Think of it as if we're all standing on the surface of a balloon, and the balloon fills with air -- we're not bigger, just "farther apart".

Why?  Often, the time spent working with maps involves a lot of fiddling and tweaking when I need to move notes into spaces grown tiny as the number of notes increases.  Zoom doesn't do this.
