Note: An additional feature in this version is a limit to the number of draw markers are drawn. By default, it is limited to 50. You can change this to any positive value you wish. Use 99 to see every marker that could be applied. The reason you want to use fewer markers is to limit the impact on the CPU.

Here is a short video of the two uses.
