Halloween theme for Microsoft Streets and Trips
Marvin Hlavac

Larry just sent me a PM reminiscing a tutorial on making a Halloween map I did a couple of years ago for another website. Here it is again:

Steps to set the background color orange:
  • Zoom out to see your route
  • Select Rectangle tool on the Drawing toolbar
  • Click and drag a rectangle on the map to cover an area larger than your route
  • Click on the arrow beside Fill Color tool on the Drawing toolbar and select orange color
  • Right-click the rectangle and select Order => Send Behind Roads
You may then import a few cute custom pushpin symbols, place them near your route, and you are done. Streets & Trips allows for importing your own images of up to 128 pixels by 128 pixels large ;-)

One of my seasonal favorite posts.

The new Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010, with its ability to toggle hide/show pushpins, is more appropriate for this than any of the earlier earlier versions.

It just isn't October without this post popping up. I've added some Jackolantern fun on the team blog as well - Streets & Trips Team Blog | New website….New look… Same great tips & tricks!

Yes, Larry, I noticed the Halloween theme on your blog, so I quickly located this old thread...

Bump... It's the time of the year again... :-)
