hagen_fenris created the topic: Icontype selection
i know your xhanging the way a new placemark is added in some way but i got a thing you maybe could think about.
At the moment the Icon selection for a new placemark in frontend is located at "Titel & Description".
Maybe you could move that to "Placemarkgroup & categroie" below.
The most of common properties in "Basic properties" block
And icons there too. May be in your case more flexible - disable icon selection (in map details in Advanced options the field "Show Icon Type Selector for New Placemark" set to No). And set override placemark icon in group settings
