I have imported a line shapefile into google earth pro desktop which is displaying fine and in the right geographic location.

The issue I have is that when I click on the layer in google earth the description balloon that pops up has data in it which I cannot edit (see image below).

I would like to find out how to edit that data in the balloon so that data I put into the description shows up instead.

    You can only view Shapefiles in Google Earth (even pro) but you can save to KML and edit. – Mapperz Jul 12 '17 at 1:24
  • Thank you. That comment got me on the right path. I saved the layer as a kmz and am able to edit the details of that file. – Ben Jul 12 '17 at 1:29
  • @Mapperz I saved as a kmz but the details in the balloon are still as in the photo I posted with my question? – Ben Jul 12 '17 at 1:37
