How do you add text to a map?



I have several monitors (6), each showing a different map. I want to put a label at the top of each map to make it more obvious what that map represents. How do you add basic text to the map diagram?

Hi there,

This is what the "Custom HTML Element"-object is for in the map designer. This allows you to add simple HTML to the "HTML-Before"-field in the object's properties. For example:

<p style='width: 100%; height: 100%; margin: 0; color: black; font-size: 18px; text-align: center;'>This is a label</p>

Best regards.

Thank you. I was thrown off by the preview text of the Custom HTML Element which says to pick an existing object in the map to add HTML. Ha, I thought it was just instructions and didn't realize that it was an object all by itself.
