Troubles & Questions / Re: Information mode

It is quite surprising that tapping an actively recorded track doesn't display more information either. A reminder to an old suggestion here.

LM4-93 - agree with @john_percy. Double tap mostly brings up the menu after a brief flash - expected. However the response to a single tap seems to have periods when ignored, other periods when OK. Eg 10 taps+10 back in 20 seconds are OK, but then a further 10 taps are all ignored. It seems the other buttons are OK although I haven't tested thoroughly. I don't recall this in LM4-91, although hadn't noticed this problem until John's post.

That's no worries.

I was thinking that maybe it should be allowed to define what to display in the map content panel. I never need geotag photos e. g., or active elements.
and allow hiding the Map Content button from the main screen altogether to increase map space, reduce clutter. Allow alternate means for all map content panel functions by other means so equally accessible via presets, side panels, settings panel, more settings panel, quick settings (I think has already been discussed but seemed like a good opportunity  :D

LM4 391 Interesting only this one time for me during installation, Google Play Protect says it hasn't seen this app before & asks to scan.

On my device, I see 26 characters, so I never considered this a big problem (old Pixel 2 device with average resolution).
ahh stupid Andrew - each time I tested the change of Android settings > Display > Font & Screen Zoom, I forgot to tap Done at exit, so the settings were simply ignored. I now confirm the text height is indeed changed to reflect this setting like your video. I do agree with @0709 it should not be necessary to change this global setting for the need of one app, Locus. I think the final result of harmonizing the font, and line wrapping for consistency with the point & track lists is still a good move forward.

Your device has from time to time some weird behavior :).
just weird owner

And sorry for my English, I wanted to say enabled break of the first line to two rows
infinitely better than my Czech ;) & as @menion always remind us, no need for sorry

@Andrew Heard
For me, it works correctly, it just needs a restart.
@menion - are you saying the Description text in your points/ tracks/ nearest points lists are affected/ altered by the Android system-level displayed font size setting?

So two changes and we will see what your device says
See on your device too? Aren't you seeing the same issue with a longer-than-15-character point description in Nearest Points list?

- enabled option to break the first line to two rows
Do you mean a user option, or just not worded how you meant? It should be automatic like the track & points lists, not an option.

@Andrew Heard
please try to fully close and re-open the app. For me, it works correctly, it just needs a restart.
@menion - a restart makes no difference - the descriptions in the Nearest Points list are always the same font size. Since my last post I have some more observations:
  • The descriptions in the track & points lists are also a fixed font size, but this is OK because the text, if any, wraps to the 2nd line.
  • The descriptions in the Nearest Points list are truncated instead of wrapped to the 2nd line. I count only 15 characters max. can be displayed per point in this list.
  • The font in the Nearest Points list is also from a different family, and appears less compact.

However that help topic was a question, not a suggestion. To be fair it was answered accurately. I *really* don't want to shorten my point descriptions just so they are more readable. For context: this limitation has come to prominence with the Nearest Points feature - I can't distinguish any of the nearest points from their truncated descriptions.

Just the difference between a "h" and "*". Fussy computers ;)

I had commented elsewhere how beautiful @karlchick's legend PDF was, but only downloaded your one recently. Equally impressive. Thank you. How was it produced?

@john_percy - it appears the "pecked edges" isn't working correctly for residential roads - see comparison in screen capture - 05/05/2020 LHS, 08/05/2020 RHS. Approx. https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=18/-42.86144/147.29515.

I'm not sure whether to make this a new help desk suggestion, create a new general forum topic, or append to this 3.45+ topic. I leave here for convenience & thoughts from @menion...

It appears Locus ignores the Android display "screen zoom" & "font size" settings. I tried reducing both of these settings so I could see more of each point description in Nearest Points, but Locus just ignores the settings. In the screen capture below I have set Font Size=Tiny & Screen Zoom=Small to maximize the amount of onscreen text but it makes no difference. I notice that Locus refreshes the list whenever I change font size, so it is listening to these operating system events. Would it be possible/ does it make sense, to take into account the users overall preference for font size? I tried the phone in landscape mode but this didn't reveal much more of each point description. Thanks for considering.

I have improved the rendering of unpaved roads in the Voluntary theme, available in the first post in this thread. Unpaved roads of various kinds are shown by pecked edges.
@john_percy - nice improvement. For me your new "pecked edges" are more visible than the Elevate/Elements subtle difference of yellow/white versus yellow/gray coloring to distinguish sealed/ unsealed surface.
