Returns all markers in map including user placed markers (_USER_DEFINED #).

Since Arma 3 v1.58 User defined markers have the following name format:
_USER_DEFINED #<PlayerID>/<MarkerID>/<ChannelID> where: For custom waypoint position (LShift+LMB) see customWaypointPosition


Return Value:
Array of Strings


Example 1:
_markers = allMapMarkers;
returns: ["marker1","_USER_DEFINED #2/0"]
Example 2:
{ private "_a"; _a = toArray _x; _a resize 15; if (toString _a == "_USER_DEFINED #") then { deleteMarker _x; } } forEach allMapMarkers;
Example 3:
if (_someString in allMapMarkers) then { hint (_someString + " is a valid marker name"); };

A3 1.12: Markers placed in editor will be in the array as a string of their name. Markers placed by the player will begin with "_USER_DEFINED #."

To expand on the comment above. In Multiplayer, user created marker will appear in allMapMarkers as _USER_DEFINED #ID/Number, where ID is unique id related to _id param from onPlayerConnected and Number is sequential integer incremented by 1 with each marker placement by the IDed user.
