Traffic Light object with label



I like to label my objects on the map with <h1>LabelX</h1> in the 'HTML Before' section. This works fine for most objects, except the traffic light. When I add this header, the traffic light object gets pushed out the bottom. Why does this happen? I don't like the way you have to label things but it works for all other objects I've tried.

Hi Michel,

This is due to the scaling of the object. If you draw the object to a bigger size, you will notice that the traffic light will be visible again. Also if you make the traffic light thinner, you will also notice that the whole traffic light is visible again.

I understand. But there's no way to fix it? I don't want to make it bigger.

I'm sorry but there is no other option. As an alternative, you can add the "custom HTML" object and place is above the traffic light to fake the headline. Another alternative would be to create a own custom map object: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61263-where-can-i-find-custom-map-objects-and-other-map-customizations
