Title: [APP] - version 3.6.x (7. 2. 2015)
Post by: menion on January 30, 2015, 15:55:05
7.2.2015 - Locus 3.6.1

Mainly bugfixing and some UI improvements. Do not forget to download old Locus cursors in Store ;).

30.1.2015 - Locus 3.6.0

Even it do not look so, changes in design (mainly invisible once) are huge. Hope there will be no serious issue and all will enjoy new version without any complains ;)

Thanks for the new version.

But the search function for POIs does not work anymore. It finds the item but I cannot select it...

Hi.
Nice work again.
Unfortunately logging geocaches doesn't work anymore (code 2 not authorized).
Didn't change anything. Is there anybody with same problem?

@TimoG: which function (exactly) are you using? I'm trying search by name/fulltext in search screen, search for Google Places, search in new DB POI and all works fine.

@Guido Farina: hmm, which rounded buttons you don't like so much? :)

@gynta: thanks for remind. I was checking your log right after you uploaded it to dropbox, but there is nothing useful inside. Hard to say what to do with it, because log has no useful info and I'm unable to simulate any problems with world vector map :/. I'll try it once more.

"Show all" - hmm what about "Show on map"?

"Choose track" - three places, very nice observation. Thank you, I'll try to reduce it on simply one - whole line - place

And if you cannot find “Pick on Map” , you probably do not need it :).

@JoxM: seems to work for me and also no one other reported any problem. Please try again later as there are rarely some issue on geocaching.com server that may cause it. Thanks

Same here.
Searching for a POI gives the list of search results - > ok
Selecting one of the items of the result formerly opened the details for this POI, now it just selects/deselects it.

I personally do not like that design. They remember me to the cheapest hardware knobs ;-) ever sold in equipment. For outdoor app usage I absolutely prefer the previous squared "robust style" good visible (bigger) knobs. (Agree with Farina).

I agree with you, as I have written earlier. The whole material design is childish. (Not a fault of Locus, but still it makes this beautiful app less usable)

- The zoom in and out buttons are like cheap plastic (seen in announcement)
- A grey or dark grey theme would be a lot nicer instead of this blue colour.
- A lot of space is wasted (e. G. Tracks list)
- The satellites screen is really inconsistent as an example. (I know Menion is still working on the look of it)

But it could have the advantage I have seen in other programs that the user may easily change between a light or a dark theme. I guess that must be a somewhat built in feature of this material thing.

New version was updated this morning ten minutes before i left the house for a bike tour.
The new center cross cursor is tooooo small. It was missed the whole day :( my eyes are older than 14 years!
I would support the idea of a color theme for Locus (pro!) . The blue theme is not my style and Locus looks strange to me.
I guess there was a lot of work "behind the stage" and users always see the surface only.

@mambofive: ah, this is better description then from @TimoG. I have found a part of code that handle this. It was commented with description "require rewrite". So I did small rewrite today evening. Will work as expected in next version, thanks.

@0709 and some others - on what you use center cross?? Anything useful?

@gynta:
#4: when you tap on this button, nothing happen??

#7: buggy? No it is indent ... and old manual, now switched icons, I know. Manual is in intensive preparation.

@szebenyib: wasted space in list of tracks? I'm almost sure, that nothing has changed there. Satellite screen inconsistent? Only change is in tabs, because old system is not by default supported in Android L. Optional dark theme is already requested on help desk. Not an easy task for such huge app as Locus is, so I'm waiting for bigger interest ...

I'm still waiting for some serious reason.

My reasons are simple - simplifications - do you know settings "Center cross"? I want to completely remove it. Current "map center" has less and less usage. Now it is possible to tap on everything on a map, it is not needed to hover it with center as before. So I'm testing something between old center cross and small black circle (result of mentioned settings). And something between is just smaller center cross. ;). Simple ...

Using center cross for "where i am?" exactly, for add /measure route often and for switching center in map. In my opinion there should be an indicator for map center necessarily!
Guys, a couple of weeks ago I got my first glasses in my life for reading purposes only :o
So fiddling with Locus outdoor without glasses is difficult to me. Taking the center cross away is gonna a big mess. Menion, I will be your hardest critic for usability and readability outdoor...
And I dont want to create a thread in help desk "please bring the old center cross back".
So please bring the old center cross back!

This problem is visible in some other screens, too.  Eg in POI view

By the way. In German it should be named "Logs"  instead of "Loggs"

@jusc: thanks for times, fixed

@gynta:
#21: thanks, improved
#22: hmm here is very simple function - if Locus is running, display big screen for adding a waypoints, if Locus is not running, use small quick screen. You think, that widget should always call this small dialog?

@Christian: and others ... hmm and what about just little bit increase visibility of this new cursor and adding exact old cursors as an item to Store so it will be really easy to add old styles back without extra work here with downloading from forum etc.?

@Diddi: unfortunately these icons are directly from add-ons, so you have to forward your "issue" directly to add-on developers, not to me.

Now it is possible to tap on everything on a map, it is not needed to hover it with center as before. So I'm testing something between old center cross and small black circle (result of mentioned settings). And something between is just smaller center cross. ;). Simple ...
I would also like to add that removing the center cross completely would be a "killer" for me, too.
If you want a serious reason: The finger is never as exact as the cross. I appreciate that almost everything is tappable now on the map screen  but for all kinds of editing, you'll need some sharp tool, not a blunt one like your finger. As long as not all smartphones are like Samsung's Note series, we need the crosshairs!
However, after discovering gyntas map cursors in the shop, I'm totally fine with having a smaller, less intrusive default center cross. Just please drop the idea of removing it altogether - I can't imagine would the upside would be, but the downside would be enormous...
Another thing I would be fine with is if hovering the center cross over a point wouldn't do anything anymore - the old title pop-ups are more disturbing than helpful now anyways.

guys, do not worry too much and try to understand me, because

"do you know settings "Center cross"? I want to completely remove it" - means I wants to remove this settings (which already happen), not center cross itself.

I've improved selector for map cursors with ability to quickly load them over store, so if there will be any interesting cursors, we will gladly place them to store.

@Christian: hmm funny fix, you're welcome :)

@readony24: hmm you mean something like this?

Hovering the center cross over a point ?

Thanx for pointing me to this. I saw that new setting, but I just assumed "Never" would turn off the popups completely. I was wrong.

Haven't had much of a chance to try Locus in earnest over the last few months , so armed with my trusty phone,( and reading all the comments on the forum ), off I went.
To be truthful I had not one problem. The centre cross wasn't a big thing, the only thing that I need is an indication to were I am. The blue circle(when stationary)  and the Blue triangle (when moving) are all I need, and hopefully they are staying. I personally don't need a cross to show me the map centre, I can see it on the screen.

Hi Tommi,
A quick "on desk" test. Simulating moving gps position by "hoovering" precisely above that "center cross" ! :)  :o.
Using compact "en.tts" is still functional. No change.
Willy.
Willy, thank you for testing. I again did my test and have to say that my de.tts is ignored.
I remember I had a similar problem one year ago and the mistake was my file had version 1 while the internal one was updated to version 2. But the version didn't change again, it's still 2.

I checked again with jsonlint.com and it told me that the file is wrong as also found out by stebu. Sorry, I used the wrong file for the test :-(.
Thanks to Menion, gynta, stebu.

But what I would Locus like to do is present an error message instead of silently ignoring the error and doing something else (loading the default file).
An error message like "Syntax of Locus/data/tts/de.tts is wrong, remove file for using Locus' default. Check file content with e.g. www.jsonlint.com" would be sufficient.

I have a while so ... currently, when you try for example download a PQ and you get an error, in top bar, you should still see a line with small "Doors" buttons. This clear your stored profile in Locus so this is a "logout" button which you wants.

Hmm you are correct, it is not possible to logout in Locus Free as you should be able to login only in test version. Otherwise all feature that require usage of Geocaching Live are available only in Locus Pro. So if you have working login in Locus Free, only way I see is to reset Locus preferences.

thats correct,
but especially for new users a not allways visible (well hidden) GS-login function is a deterrence to use Locus Free and parhaps later on to buy PRO :(
Also missing logout option in Free, keep in mind, a family with one device and different GS-accounts....

I think a always available  section login/logout in "Geocache settings" would be a benefit. to Free and PRO ;)

do not understand, sorry. Login to geocaching in Locus is possible only in Locus Pro (if we do not count a testing version of Locus Free). Every feature that require geocaching live, should open a window with login options. Such window should not be visible in Locus Free so there is no option to login at all. Because of this, there should be no reason for "logout" option. Or am I missing something? :)

Yes, just as Balloni55 said: there are e.g. families with more than one account. So if they have only one device with them, they need the option to log out and log in as another player.

 ::) for me it is possible only with FREE 8)

My situation,
at the moment i have installed official Locus Free and Pro
my workflow:
- i log out PRO from GS and close PRO
- i reset FREE preferences, start it, download additional data
- i create a offline log with FREE
- now i open "FieldNotes" and proceed "upload Fieldnote" with FREE
- login to GS with successfull upload of this fieldnote
see attached video
- while opening my account on PC i see this uploaded fieldnote :)
- to verify i open PRO > i am furtermore logged off on GS

ah, then you found nice small issue. This function should not work in Locus Free. And "Logout" in case of more people using one app make sense. For now, you may simply tap for example on "Get list of PocketQueries", then cancel result and you should see "Logout" button at top of Geocaching tools list.

Hi,

Search option: ADDRESS & PLACE.

Using Predictive Text On on my Lollipop with 3x4 numeric keyboard there is no something like 'one touch disable predictive text option' as was on old Android systems, then hard to type any city name not spending half a day for doing that.
So I do rotate horizontal screen having QWERTY keyboard being able to type any non dictionary place name. Unfortunately when rotating back to vertical view, Locus clears the search window (from vertical to horizontal same).

Why am I using 3x4 keyboard with predictive text but not QWERTY one? As I use one thumb only typing twice time faster then any QWERTY user (proven;), having my other hand occupied usually.

Anyway, is it any chance to fix that glitch on next version please?
Title: Re: [APP] - version 3.6.x (7. 2. 2015)
Post by: menion on February 16, 2015, 22:51:50
Kona, you made me a hard hours.

I understand issue you found and absolutely agree it should work as expected. Anyway it took me a three hours to find and issue in Android itself that really complicates me a work. So unfortunately, for now, I have no simple solution on this problem. It requires rewrite of search dialog to different system otherwise rotation won't be correct. Sorry to say it. I'm sure, soon or later, this issue will be fixed! Thanks for understanding.

Post by: Kona on February 17, 2015, 10:01:53

No problem at all. ;)

I blame Samsung since Android 4, as they are pretty good with disabling usable options, in that case XT9 On-Off key which used to work perfectly on my ancient 2.3.6 device. Now since Android 4 disabling predictive text is hidden so deep, even if you custom Gear button On, on your keypad is annoying.
For sure there are third party apps for that.

In simply words, typing thinks such web-address with predictive text is complicated, but typing essays such emails or WhatsApp messages, predictive is unbeatable.

Thanks,

Locus can wait, just reported to you.

because of "changed settings" i create a full backup with PRO and restored this in TEST
result after first start of TEST, additional data must be downloaded and button of GC4L and FielNotes on right side panel are gone an changed to one pencil button.
If i restore this backup in Pro there is no need for additional data download and buttons on right side panel appear as expected.

Hi again,
Don't know if somebody asked this already (didn't find it).
I have a problem with the function "choose from map" (german "Von der Karte wählen".
When I open a geocache and want to create a new waypoint and choose the above function to choose the coordinates from an other point, the coordinates doesn't change to the ones of the chosen point. They stay on the center cross.

while creating the video, i noticed that current behavior is unlucky ???
In video first i create new WPT02, tap on map in the village and see the label "Select", after that i move the mapcenter to the forrest and confirm  hookbutton down left. The new WPT is set to mapcenter in forrest :(
In second attempt i tap oncemore the village, get the label "Select" and confirm with click on label now WPT03 is on required possition :D
I think if user select a point on map, see the label, confirm with hookbutton he dont want the coords of mapcenter.
So my ideas, i prefere the first 8)
1. delete possibility "free select on map", useing mapcenter with zoom and move map is more precisely and clearly!
2. if user use "free select on map" he want consciously this possition and than locus should use this coords after confirming with hookbutton.
3. if user use "free select on map" display on label e.g. "click to store/use"

Well, I think it is a matter of getting used to it. By adding this "Select label" method we enriched this function for those who are not accustomed to the other method, ie. mapscrencenter > hookbutton. Maybe a floating popup with a howto hint would help, Menion?

@balloni, @Michal, @JoxM: hard to say what is best solution. I agree with Peter who always say that people do not read texts. So hint is not a solution by me for this simple feature. So I see only two options here:

1. remove small white popup when you tap on a map and leave only bottom "pick center" button as was in previous versions
2. rename label "Select" to something like balloni wrote "Click to choose" or similar

I personally cannot say what is better and I know precisely how everything on this screen works :).

@0709: unfortunately this is not possible. "Home" button is probably only button (maybe also "Power"), where as a developer I have absolutely no control over it. So even "Screen lock" cannot lock usage of "Home" button, sorry.

Alright... actually how many people expressed their confusion with this solution  except Balloni? Maybe be there are  hundreds of angry complaints and then I was wrong but I can't see any. Those who welcome this option will not write anything and most surely even don't have a clue about this forum.

So again.
While geocaching and walking a multicache I come to a stage without given coordinates. So I add a point to locus on the map.
Afterwards I want to add this point as a waypoint in the listing of the cache.
So I create a new waypoint and want to pick the point which I created from the map while it is not centered. And then the coordinates in this new waypoints are the one from the center and not the ones from tge created point. In the past this worked. I'm sure, because I used it very often. Hope it's clearer now...

Post by: Michal on March 02, 2015, 08:43:25
@menion, @JoxM etc.: what about this - there would be still two ways how to select a point on the map: 1) by tapping the mapscreen on the spot where I want the point (a label with some later editable point name pops up), 2) by the mapscreen center. Both ways would be confirmed by the hookbutton. Huh?

@0709: thanks for screenshots. On first screenshot of your device Tab4 7" - it has to be an issue in Android. There are completely missing big black/blue dots on end of switcheds. Also second screen is little bit weird. Old Locus version on Ace2? Because on all devices it should look really same as on screen 3 - TabPro 10". Hmm ... hard to say what to do with first device. Is it same on all screens? Also directly in Android settings, are there used same switches?

@Michal, @JoxM, @balloni: I have to say, that in this case, I'm still not sure, which solution is best, so I'll try to give chance to simple rename of "Popup label" and we will see. Thanks for your opinions!

New BETA 3.6.2.3
Two things to test
1. new system for definition of content of top/right panel. Maybe something is slower, maybe little bit confused for you because you used few years old system. But try to use it a while
2. mainly for gynta, finally - http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/edit-trackpoint-insert-new-points-in-a-row . Try to start "Edit location" in bottom menu and you will see. It is not exactly what you wanted, but it is something "between". Not sure if will be clear how to use it.

@0709: cannot agree on 100% that old system was better visible. You have to consider also screen of device. Old UI on your new device will be also less visible because all items/buttons will be smaller. Anyway on your last device is visible how it should look like on all devices, no matter if you have 4.X or 5.X. What you see on first device is an issue and I have absolutely no idea how to fix it, because as a dev, I have no direct influence on how these buttons look like (except color).

I'm still wayting on a new version of one essential Google library that take care about this stuff. There is more issues, so please wait together with me and believe that this problem will be fixed. Thanks for understanding.

Well, not only for Gynta ;)
Question: While you're at this, is there a chance you could also include deleting a section from within a track (http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/cut_tracks)? I think it's a very related feature and it would be odd if you could add a bunch of trackpoints in the same step, but not delete a bunch at once.

Yes, I'm aware of this and I was already thinking about it. But, I just not yet know, how to simply implement it, because I still miss a mouse with two buttons :). There is missing a too to manually by finger select an area, which should be little bit problematic .. hmm, I'll think about it more
Yes, sometimes a mouse is just best...
What about the following:
That sounds rather straightforward to me, but of course you're the develope ;)

New set Top/Right side panel:
- some text is concealed
- "section" ADD NEW ITEM on top of this window would be better i think ;)

@slarti76: easy to say, harder to do. Thanks for feedback ;). I'll let me head think about it a while ...

@gynta: one small step for locus, big step for ... :)

@balloni55: texts, improved, "Item at top" - hmm I'm still not sure about best place - let usage show. And "not changed" label - thanks, I completely forget!

Hi menion

"Item at top" - hmm I'm still not sure about best place - let usage show.
i want to know how looks a "virgin" locus for a new user.
So i "Reset preferences" on Testversion,  the result is not as i´ve expected :-[
some settings are changed :), but buttons in right side panel are displayed exactly as before. :(
so i didn´t see what i want
In discription of Reset preferences is written "Reset all settings........"

hehe, it is possible :). Locus till now stored configuration of panels in separate file in Locus/data/config. But this has changed and now this settings is stored inside Locus. When you reset Locus, it now do not delete required file in config directory and after start it loads old panel config back :).

...2. mainly for gynta, finally - http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/edit-trackpoint-insert-new-points-in-a-row . Try to start "Edit location" in bottom menu ... Not sure if will be clear how to use it.
ahemm.. nope absolutely not  ;D ;D
(after first try)

edit1
ok - i only was confused by a small issue.
if you only edit one location - the track was not refreshed.
see clip

edit2
please hide popup after choose edit function because it covers the trackpoints

...and "Delete in a row" was a other story...  ;)

hmm I think point was correctly edited, but track was not correctly refreshed. Zoom in/out should fix it. Anyway solved. Thanks. I also did some smaller improvements so it should be even better now :)

Tried new Beta yesterday and today, two observations:
- GPS catch not working. Had to reboot, tried again with Beta, no success, used older Pro - worked
- as you can imagine, quiet a bit of my trip through Paris was lost, so I tried to fill in manually. First step is moving the first point. Put it to La Defense, pressed the new "OK" at the top - nothing happens. Old Pro does the job well in the old way.
Any thoughts ?
Cheers
Michael

once again after update i get changed setting/config :(
this time map_automatic_zoom_lock changed from 0 to default 1  ::)

EDIT:  also changed
export_photo_width
gui_points_tabs_order
guiding_path_map_symbol
map_items_guiding_color

this is very annoying, because config is not saved in backup !

hmm, works fine here with last beta 3.6.2.4
see clip - what's different to your action?

I thought, it only works with co-apps

I downloaded a few caches using GC4Locus. Among those there was one with special characters in name, which (I presume) cause Locus to crash when trying to open this cache - via map or via cache list, does not matter. It's GC5DAWZ and the problem can be reliably reproduced. :)

@michaelbechtold: sorry, but if there is any problem, I need step-by-step method to simulate it. And from your description, I have no idea what's wrong. What about GPS? You had no GPS Fix with latest Locus beta version?

@balloni55: you talk about change in config.cfg file? This file is stored in backup!! Isn't possible you restored it from backup?

@Mek: unfortunately I have no such problem. May you create a log for me? Thanks

you are right, now after unzip i see config.cfg is in backup.zip included, but it isn´t restored.
so e.g.
gui_point_screen_tabs_order=14|1|11|12|13|16
is stored in backup
i change config.cfg on device to
gui_point_screen_tabs_order=
and save it, restart device and restore complete including restart of device, but these values are not restored

Hmm maybe you pointed me on one possible issue. I'm made an improvement so in next version, restored config from backup should really remain restored. Currently it is probably overwrote when Locus is restarted (overwrote with current loaded settings). Thanks!

EDIT: topic closed, new version is out. Thanks guys for another useful month! ;)
