"to let the user cycle through those markers"
"to let the user view each marker"

I think my version is shorter :) I agree that passive voice may be an
issue, but I wasn't sure of the context or audience.

Except that uses passive voice and uses a 7-word phrase to say the same
thing as good ol' "cycle through" does in 2 words

How about "to let the user view each marker"?

Hello all! This is my first email to the listserv, though I've been
reading it for some weeks. I hope somebody here might offer a good
suggestion because I am stumped.

In a document I have written:

"The InfoWindow, which opens when a marker or bubble is tapped, has a
black background with white text. If multiple markers are close to each
other, the InfoWindow includes arrows to let the user cycle through those
markers. The report metrics are displayed in the InfoWindow in the order
that they are listed on the report."

I am told that "cycle through" isn't appropriate to technical writing, but
can't think of a better phrase, though one must exist.

Any ideas?

All the best,
Ryan
