Hey James,

I'm working on this as well and it's actually really easy to do.

Hello @michel,

How can I get a KML into the Google Maps Plugin?

I hope it helps you alot.

Ok - It's now working perfectly.

Question: When I go into drawing I now see my map from the KML file - when I choose the area on the map, I can not edit that area.
