Quote from: Menion on January 26, 2024, 08:29:53are you sure, that the toilet icon is offline LoPoint? So the active clickable point that comes from the (attached to the map) offline database?
You may recognize lopoints by visible "Add photo" icon in the top right corner of the point detail.
@menion - just doubled checked - yes offline LoPoint & "Add photo" icon.

A different topic, and probably an observation rather than any action needed, but I have 4.21.0 installed on device:

and yet Google Play Store offers to update to 4.20?? I declined the offer. I have not seen this before, and probably tomorrow everything will be "back in sync".

excellent/ perfect - all & none ;-) great example showing how previously the bike parking POI were hidden in the "map clutter" and now clearly evident with all theme settings turned off!!

Quote from: MenionInteresting, I'm playing with it and for me, size of offline LoPoints is really controlled by the "LoPoint icon size" option. Interesting...

Unfortunately this forum doesn't allow quoting from one topic to another
https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=8684.msg74362#msg74362

attached screen caps - left "i" is my own added point, right icon is from LoPoints(offline) > search toilet

1st screen: point icon size 90%, LoPoint icon size 300%
2nd screen: point icon size 300%, LoPoint icon size 90%

So for me, I think this demonstrates icon size is NOT altered by LoPoint icon size? Intended? The map is OAM, however I have tested & confirmed same sizes with Locus map.

Quote from: Menion on January 22, 2024, 14:45:09just a little hidden settings:
@menion - I did say Point Icon Size or LoPoint Icon Size?

Quote from: Andrew Heard on January 21, 2024, 23:20:57@menion - the size of LoPoints(offline) icons isn't influenced by Settings > Points & Tracks > Point Icon Size or LoPoint Icon Size.
my fault - yes the size does vary - my testing shows that the size of LoPoints(offline) icons is controlled by "Point Icon Size", not "LoPoint Icon Size". Is that intended?

@Sup - try this - export track as KML then import into Google Earth - it's fantastic. POI are correctly imported as well. I wish I'd known about this possibility years ago.

@menion - the size of LoPoints(offline) icons isn't influenced by Settings > Points & Tracks > Point Icon Size or LoPoint Icon Size. What am I doing wrong? Sorry for newbie question.

Quote from: Tapio on January 21, 2024, 08:22:06I asked because there are bike parking icons in your screenshot and amenity=bike_park is not in OAM.
@Tapio - yes, bike parking was my original reason to pursue this topic; I'm using OAM Australia-Tasmania from 2021/11/28. My theme doesn't reference any SVG. As suggested elsewhere after my original question, the POI come from doing LoPoints(offline) > Hiking & Cycling > Bicycle parking > tap icon top RHS (100)

Quote from: Tapio on January 21, 2024, 08:22:06Yes, 1.3.9. Did you use the theme file I attached?!
no, I was using 1.3.8. new "buildings" in 1.3.9 - thanks. I note when I uncheck "Road network" the larger roads are hidden but not minor roads? Similarly when I uncheck "City" & "Suburb", most place names are hidden but not some minor place names? Compare the 2 screen caps attached.

Quote from: Tapio on January 21, 2024, 11:58:43I am interested if the "Install latest" in my signature works for you
I'm testing from Windows PC then copying ZIP to device with FTP

@T-mo - me too - somewhat clunky system. I 1st do "quick reply" > Save, then More... > Modify.

This final comment may be better in the 4.20 beta topic, but @menion - the size of LoPoints(offline) icons isn't influenced by Settings > Points & Tracks > Point Icon Size or LoPoint Icon Size.

Quote from: Tapio on January 20, 2024, 12:12:17No, no specific theme editor.
@tapio - super impressive effort; and all the theme editors - 1000's of hand written rules with no compiler/ syntax checker/ or instant viewer. Like hand coding hex in machine language without an assembler even. I imagine a program where the screen shows a map with every type of point, every type of way, every type of relation; a syntax-checking editor below like Visual Studio where any change if reflected in the updated map. I'm dreaming.

Quote from: Tapio on January 20, 2024, 12:24:22Forum... searched and found it. AFAICS Menion didn't notice/comment. https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=8572.msg73222#msg73222
sadly not

Quote from: Tapio on January 20, 2024, 12:41:14a) is that Lomaps? b) please share the svg icon/source of bike parking?
no, it's my super-cutdown-simple theme; there are no references to SVG files in the theme and I removed all street names

Quote from: Tapio on January 20, 2024, 12:41:14Attached: My theme without buildings. Option # 4833186 😂 in "All features".
I unchecked all settings in your "All features" but it still shows building outlines. is that a feature in a version newer than 1.3.8?

@tapio - I've created a simple theme so that temporary LoPoints are more visible, and background "clutter" is avoided. Gee - I didn't realize how complicated these themes are. How are they modified? Some special theme editor? It is so tedious & error prone using a plain text editor.

4.20.1.4 beta: option to share single LoPoint - excellent @menion! Now for similar share from the Web Planner, similar to sharing a track...

I've moved the discussion back from https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7000.msg74312#msg74312.

Quote from: Tapio on January 19, 2024, 11:06:03You probably know this is possible in Tapiola ("Basic features without POI" has this use case in mind).
@Tapio - to be honest, I'd forgotten, as your "all features" theme is "just" part of my "tapio" preset. Your "basic" is cleaner than LM road, so I've now adopted it as my theme for my "simple" preset, although it could be even simpler. I may investigate later...

Quote from: Tapio on January 19, 2024, 11:06:03And I had a related suggestion, but IIRC Menion disagreed: Add Offline/Online Lopoi setting to presets. Because then you can easily a) turn on the theme (which displays no poi at all) + b) turn on lopoi.
help topic link?

My apologies @karlchick. Rather than duplicate my comments, see https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg74307#msg74307.

And following on from my comments @ https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=8518.msg74306#msg74306, my (others?) use-case of wanting to see all POI of a search just for a short time, having a super boring theme showing no points, names or features than other roads, would allow those searched points to be highly visible. A case for "really simple plain theme" linked to a preset named "simple", which at present seems best with "LM road". <end ramble>
