This is the way it seems like I have to add places to a map I've made in "My Places":
Search for the place I want to add
Click on its icon on the map, or on the left in its entry
Click "save to map" in its bubble, select the map I want to save to, and click the save button
It now has the icon/marker type of the previous place I saved. So if the last place was a hotel, but I just added a restaurant, this restaurant has a bed icon from the old hotel. So now,
Click "view map" on the thing that popped up on the top that says "[place name] was saved to [map name]" (or click on My Places and find my map again)
Click the red edit button
Find the place that I just saved in the list of places on this map on the left (always the last item, I guess) and click it
On the bubble that pops up, click the icon in the upper right
Choose the icon I want for this place
Am I doing something wrong? It seems bizarre that when I add a place, I have to go through all these extra steps to choose the icon that I want for it. Is there a way to choose the icon when I add it to the map?
Or at least is there a way to add places (with the correct icon) that's easier than what I described above?
