Borders, Places, and Roads are labeled as "(Outdated)"
3
I selected the Mac OS, but the same thing is occurring on my PC.  My Borders and Labels, Places, and Roads layers suddenly became unchecked and are labeled as "(Outdated)" on both platforms.  On my Mac I have uninstalled and reinstalled, and as far as I can tell Google Earth is up to date on both computers.  Has Google stopped supporting the desktop version (regardless what they say in the FAQs)? 

I've tried the web version and, frankly, it doesn't meet my requirements - I still need the desktop version.  Is there a way to update or is Google cutting support for layers to push people from the desktop version to the web version?  Thanks.

Hi Iwasnah,
 
That's a new update for the Layers section of Google Earth.  Please take a look at this post from Google that explains.

That post by Google would be great... if I actually had the new categories it describes.  Instead I just have all my old ones marked outdated with no replacements.

Well you can still use the layers marked 'Outdated'. Its just well they are outdated, for example missing latest roads etc. They have been in this outdated state for a while, now just explicitly labeled as such. 
 
As some point will be getting the new layers, which will happen before the old ones are completely removed.

Ahhh, this is unfortunate for me! I work in local and regional planning and use GE Pro desktop daily. I have the new layers and they do not capture all of the place options that were previously included under the old Place Categories. I don't care where all of the McDonalds are in the vicinity of a project I'm working on but I do need to know where all of the schools and government services (fire, police, libraries, etc.) are. I already can no longer use and cite the web version of google maps for making document figures because if you don't want a regional or vicinity map covered in all of the Holiday Inn locations, turning off labels turns off everything and you have to manually add your own street labels in Illustrator and what used to take 5 minutes now takes 2 hours. Does not providing the ability to access individual types of places within the overall places category save them money somehow?

Does anyone know of another service that will provide this type of information? I'm even willing to pay for software that is as user friendly as GE Pro was.
