[Template] Old-style pushpins for Streets & Trips 2009 / MapPoint 2009
stanlevy
I need some help. I changed to MP2009 running XP. I have an old file MP2002 file that I opened with MP2009. I can't seem to get the pushpins to work on the old file. I did the steps listed for this fix MPPushpin.zip . However I cannot find the 2009 directory. The pushpins work on new maps but not the old file. Any suggestions?

Hi stanlevy,

It was also my incorrect assumption that after custom pushpin symbols are added to the default template, the symbols will automatically appear also in old version files when they are converted to new version format.

When you convert your v2002 file into MapPoint 2009 format, you will still need to add the custom pushpin symbols to the file after the conversion, as far as I know.

Do I have to these 1 at a time or is there a file that will do it
automatically?

This small utility will allow you to add the missing custom symbols to MapPoint in "batch mode"

However, when I load an old S&T 2007 map, I do not get the original pushpins that I had on that map and the PushPin menu, only shows the original 2009 set.

Your anybody else help would be appreciated. Thank you!
It also occurs with a newly saved 09 .est pre replacement of template

I downloaded this and the pushpins are there which is great but i can't figure out how to import my current map?

Hi bmrncon, and welcome to the forums. Could you please describe in detail what it is that you are trying to achieve?

I think I share the same problem as bmrncon. I believe I have checked all the proper threads in this and other forums. I have a map developed with 2007S&T that contains ~500 pushpins, symbols, etc. from the old set. The new ones assigned automatically by 2009 are not descriptive enough. e.g., Previous yellow and red pushpins are now all red (actually maroon). They need to be two different colors.

I copied the new template. When opening a new file in 2009, I can now see the 2006 pushpins. When I open my existing file (the one with all the data in it), the 2006 pushpins are not available. How can I open an existing file in 2009 and be able to view/use the 2006 pushpins?

Thanks in advance.

bump - I also need to load 06 files daily, because the boss man has 06 and sets up GPS routes with different colored flags.

No way to get symbols in 06 files to display properly???? What an upgrade this was....

Hi CrossCrucial,

Welcome to the forums. Try the tool downloadable at MapForums.com: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/978-easy-way-add-old-pushpins-streets-trips-2009-a
My Point...Exactly
Here's a tutorial for loading the template that includes the older S&T pushpins into 2009 - based on Larry's post #5 back in October. Useful for new users starting with S&T.

Please refer to my original posting 1/13/09 (below). Not sure if I am slow but I am just not getting this and it is frustrating. I have read through each of the threads here and on mapforums. It seems like all the different programs and downloads all do the same thing, change the template. I did that and it is fine for new files but I desperately need to update an old file. I would be very greatful if someone could explain why this continues to elude me.

When opening a new file in 2009, I can now see the 2006 pushpins. When I open my existing file (the one with all the data in it), the 2006 pushpins are not available. How can I open an existing file in 2009 and be able to view/use the 2006 pushpins?

herrzuba, if even this tool doesn't do it for you, then I think the only way to accomplish it may be by importing the pushpin symbols you need (one by one ).
