This action gives you the chance to toggle ( show/hide ) elements inside your page. See the example provided in how to create a modal effect. there is a live example with html and css code you can copy and use within your website!

Pick the perfect color for your subdivision from the color-picker button. Choose from infinite colors.
Assign different colors to each subdivision.
Apply the hover over color status
Default value: unchecked.
By ticking the Activate Mouse Over Background checkbox you make the subdivision color change when user hovers over it. The background color is the same for all subdivisions and can be set in main settings section.
Move your mouse over “Alabama” state to see how the subdvision’s color changes.
Export and import settings
In case you need to backup all subdivisions settings, just go to the bottom of the Subdivisions’ settings section and click on “Export settings“: this will create and let you download a cvs file with all settings.
You can then use that exported file to: create an identical new instance of the same map in other posts/pages or domains or just for backup purposes.
Once you’ve exported your settings, you can then import into any other map with the same subdivisions ( so even with different projection format ) and have your settings back in just 2 clicks! Just click on “Select Subdivision file” under “Import settings” section, upload the exported settings file ( cvs format ) and then click on the “Import Subdivisions settings” button.
Just wait till the message will advise you the process is completed.
See below example: we have exported settings from an Albers projection-like USA map ( same in home page ) and imported into a Mercator projection-like USA map. All settings will be imported: colors, action etc…
And here the result:
Download settings for this map for free and use it for your brand new maps ( remember to unzip it once downloaded onto your computer before importing it )!
When importing a Subdivisions settings file, remember to update the page in order to save the new settings. In case you do not want anymore the new settings, just use the grey button on the right saying: “Restore old values”.
