Can I change the yellow background of my custom marker?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


A custom marker will have a yellow background when added to a view if it is made from a 24-bit bitmap (16 million colors); thus, one option is to change the type to an 8-bit bitmap (256 colors). Another option is to change the bitmap to a GIF (Graphics Interchange Format). You can do either of these in an external graphics software program.
