@Michael: Firstly, I must apologise over the Arabic comment. Some areas in North Africa are trilingual and I didn't recognise the Berber(?) character set.
Nonetheless, I do think some areas are hopelessly overcrowded (see below).
Picture 1: Roman, Berber, Arabic character sets
Picture 2: Overcrowded texts.

Thanks for the link and for the hard work that has gone into the maps.
Feedback on this version: ZL8 in the UK looks great. Not so good in countries with two versions of place names, and I'm not keen on the coloured outlines.
The low zooms (1, 2, 3) look good, too, but some of the intermediate levels look far too crowded for my taste.
Also, some of the Arabic place names are using an incorrect font.
Thank you for your feedback, John.
Indeed a question of taste - but also of purpose. Highlighting capitals can be helpful for travelers and other interested people. And I have been working to validate them (and it will be massive work to feed back into OSM finally, where there is quite some chaos).
Dual language areas will definitely not win a beauty contest, but again, having both languages in front of the eyes when abroad I consider benefitial, from apractical, not aesthetical point of view, though.

I am very concerned however, about your finding of a wrong arabic font. Can you pls. point to some examples ? Because I have no idea which part of the processing chain I must not trust here ... and what I need to fix.

TXs and cheers
Michael

...with OAM and Elevate.
Thanks erfi - that's great. OAM is the only provider to distinguish between unpaved & unknown surface! I wasn't using the latest OAM map & Elevate theme. I must make another donation to those guys.

It is possible to install both LoMaps and OAMaps of the same area, and use the LoMaps offline address search while displaying the OAM maps. Offline address search allows you to select the file to search (at the top of screen).
Thanks John. Good tip.

@voldapet:
1. Aha. But I didn't think to try that, so it's not obvious enough for me!
2. Under Maps, there are a host of maps. Click wrench, then show on map. Show what? I wonder. One map? All maps? Which map? Legend says, Zoom in. Nothing different on zooming in. My initial idea was it might be a preview of the available map, but I had no idea how I could cycle through them.
Try the same thing with Tracks. Lots of available tracks. Which track is it meant to display? It doesn't anyway. My initial idea here was I might see the tracks centred on a map. But which track?

@john_percy
Thank you for comments
1. I can understand ...have you tried filter under wrench icon?
2. Can I ask you what was your initial idea when you saw the "Show on map" label. What did you think about it? (I only want to better understand you and other user to avoid potential complications).
"Show in map" shows the location of items (maps) in map view. It helps to search items on the map.  (please try it in any section where are any maps). I know that this feature is useless in "Graphic" section (we know about it and it's waiting for improving)

Heureka!
Dank an alle Antwortenden - jetzt habe ich den Button "Info bearbeiten"  endlich gefunden - letztendlich hat das englische PdF mein Problem gelöst.

Thanks John. I just tried a 2016 OAM map of the same area with Elements LE/ Elements LE/ Hilo V9/ Velocity/ Voluntary UK but road on either side of this point has the same style (where surface changes in OSM database). I'd like to stay with LoMaps for the offline address search facility but being able to see different style for unpaved/ unknown surface would be very useful.
