Google Maps Drawing Add-on Support

Sketch anything you want directly in Dreamweaver

Google Maps Drawing Add-on is a fully integrated Drawing Editor and allows you to sketch anything you want directly in Dreamweaver. Just pick the place on the map that you need to work on and start drawing. You can draw directions, different shapes such as rectangles, circles or even polygons to highlight certain parts of the map. You can choose any color, set up opacity and stroke.

The Add-on also works greatly in our amazing Advanced HTML Editor 3, where you have all its functionality directly in it. It's very simple to use and the effects that you can accomplish are stunning.

This is a wonder add-on when it works, but unlike the claim that it works with Google Maps version 2, it does not. I have emailed support for a resolution and never heard back from them.
