I am a frequent user of Google Maps, and I have quite a few of "My Maps", where I collect placemarks.
Now I am trying to create a new of these My Maps, and add placemarks to it. After searching for an address or location, there used to be an option to "Save to map". I cannot find it anymore.
http://www.kevinandamanda.com/whatsnew/travel/create-a-custom-travel-map-with-google-maps.html shows instructions for saving to user maps. There is one comment to that post reporting that "Save to map" is missing (The Armchair Parisian, September 16, 2014 at 3:16 pm). It is also stated that one should use the new Google Maps / Maps Engine to be able to "Save to Map".
This page in Google help, which refers to Google Maps Classic, confirms that by omission, since it only mentions "See your personal places in Maps", but nothing about adding.
Is there any official confirmation that Classic Maps will not allow adding places anymore?
EDIT (4 years later): For a time, there was only one "Set" of "saved places" that one could use. After tons of user requests, now one can have several of "My Maps" storing Saved Places (bookmarks).
