Directions button in embeds

2 min readMay 10, 2019

To complement the Geolocation button added in the previous version, Directions button has also been added to the embed options.

What is directions button? It’s the small arrow symbol in the bottom right corner, which is shown when you select a “point” type item.

Directions button

When you click it, it opens a native mobile app or a Google Maps website with a route planning pre-filled from your current location to the selected point.

Now it’s supported in the Embed Wizard.

Bug fixes

There was a bug, which didn’t allow unlocated images to be saved, which has been fixed.

Also, if you import geometry with illegal coordinates (for example latitude > 90 degrees), those are now automatically fixed instead of being removed.
