@Dan,
My employer (US Government) blocks this from working. They block Gmail, google docs, etc.  Can you please talk with them and ask them to open it up, at least issue a waiver for me?
Thanks,
zow

Anyone know how to print a saved map with descriptions next to the pins?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Obviously known but this feature becomes very useful when you are looking for something to do near a destination Say your flying to Israel and looking for somewhere to go in Europe
you can see through the map actual traveled locations.

I don't believe that's possible.

You can try exporting the map to KML and see if Google Earth gives you that option.

Thanks! I ended up exporting it to photoshop and manually put the text on another layer.
