Help, Support and Video Tutorials including some simple FAQ's

We’ve created a few short video tutorials for users of our Map Colouring System and for people who want to use Adobe Illustrator to edit original vector map artwork files downloaded from our site. The videos are short and concise to the point, they are pretty much a recording of what we say and get you to do on the phone when you ring up to ask how to use the system.

Frequently Asked Questions

I made a purchase but never received a confirmation email.
As soon as you’ve completed your purchase, the same piece of code that takes your payment immediately fires off an email to the address you supplied when paying. If you don’t receive it in your inbox within a few minutes, it may have been filtered into your junk folder. You made a mistake when entering your email address or your anti-spam software completely did away with it. It was definitely sent though.

I enter my email address into the system and it says i have No Credits.

How do I colour in a map
Watch the short video on the Help page that corresponds to your purchase. This will guide you through the simple steps required to start building your own maps.

The system isn’t working.
Hundreds of maps are produced each day on our site. The chances are that something is incorrectly configured on your computer.  First thing to try would be to download and try the system using Google Chrome, this is the most stable web browser we can find that runs the system perfectly. Internet Explorer can be quite buggy on older systems so try and give IE a miss if you can.

The system runs very slowly.
Our site is hosted on its own dedicated web-server with 100% uptime.  4xCPU’s, 6gb RAM, 65GB SSD storage and 650GB/monthly bandwidth capability. It is most likely that your internet connection is very slow. Try using a different connection if possible, connect using a wifi hotspot on a 4g phone or use the system on a machine with a faster internet connection.

Any other questions just give us a call or drop us an email, we’re here to help you get the most out of our products.
