Creating a Geo quotation is not much different from creating other type of quotations. The only difference is that the quotation is just one location on the map - the place mark, and not a region.
Right-click on the place mark and select the option Create Quotation.
To create further quotations:
Either enter a new address and search for a location of interest, or left-click a point of interest on the map to set a place mark.
Right-click and select Create Quotation from the context menu, or use the short-cut cmd+H.
You can enter a name for geo quotation in the inspector on the right-hand side.
Geo quotations can be accessed in the margin area, the Quotation Manager, the Project Explorer, and from within networks. Geo quotations are displayed as follows:
The quotation icon shows a place mark.
In the Project Explorer, the Quotation Reader and Manager and all reports, geo quotations are referenced as decimal degrees, e.g. LAT 48.859911° LON 2.377317°. In addition, the Quotation Manager shows a preview of the Geo location. You may want to consider renaming Geo quotations, e.g. by adding the name of the location. Another option is to add a comment. See also Working with Multimedia Quotations.
Select a Geo quotation in any of the following places and double-click:
- margin area
- Quotation Manager
- Project Explorer
The quotation will be displayed in context.
An activated place mark is colored in orange. Non-activated place marks are colored in gray.
To modify a Geo quotation, activate it, so it is highlighted in orange.
Move the place mark to a different location. The quotation follows along.

You can also create a quotation and link a code to it in one step, or code an existing quotation:
Set a place mark or select an existing quotation, right-click and select the option Apply Codes or cmd+J.
All other drag-and-drop operations described for coding also apply.
Creating a Geo
You can create a snapshot from the geographic region that is currently shown on your screen. This snapshot is automatically added as a new image document.
The advantage of the image is that you can select a region as quotation and not only a single point on a map. Further you can browse the Geo location in Google Maps (see below).
Open a Geo document.
In the Document tab, click on the button Create Snapshot.
A new document is created. The default name is: 'Geo Snapshot @ longitude:latitude' of the last selected location.
As a snapshot results in an image document, you can also handle it like an image document. See for example Creating Image Quotations.
