How to use a specific marker with kml data

Discussion created by dar104 on May 28, 2013
I am loading a kml file and I lose some data depending on how far I am zoomed in.  I wanted to find out how I can specify the symbol for the points without having to parse the kml file and inserting points in a layer. 

Is there a way to say load kml file using a certain symbol for the points?
