I'm working in CartoDB on a map that is pretty much completed. I was editing a text item that I had added to the map, and I somehow moved it out of the editor screen and now cannot find it again (it has the data citation). I would assume that was deleted, but when I view my map on my organizations website where it is embedded, it is appearing in the original place. I need to edit the text item, though - any suggestions for how to locate it and move it back into the map view editor?
It seems that when you moved the screen, the item got hidden.
If it's an annotation element, open the JS console of the developer tools of your Browser meanwhile the Editor with the map is open, and run:
$('div.annotation.overlay').css("left", "0") $('div.annotation.overlay').css("top", "0")
This will put the element at the top-left corner.
If it's a text item, use:
$('div.text.overlay').css("left", "0") $('div.text.overlay').css("top", "0")
Then, once the elements are visible in the Editor, you can get rid of them or move them wherever you need.
