Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] OS Map

Apologies.  I cheated - just copied the xml into mapstyles folder.  It appeared in the oruxmap app so I thought that was all I needed to do. 

All good now.   Brilliant in fact!

Many thanks karlchick.  Great to see it working.  Think I agree we should leave vtm off until they've improved it. Doesn't seem right that a working theme should have issues only visible in their new viewer.

Well done for working out the problem - I couldn't!  Clearly VTM shows promise but does not seem to be stable. Understand you not wanting to publish an update to your theme based on this - I'll try and make the change you have highlighted to my local copy.

Dear Karlchick,

I am one of the many who became increasingly disenchanted with Ordnance Survey charging me multiple times to access their maps on replacement devices over the years (going back as far as Memory Maps).

Discovering your OS themes over OSM maps has probably been my favourite software discovery since downloading WYSISYG font drivers for the Canon BJ10ex (giving away my age now!)

So I just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts.  As a software developer I have an idea just how much work and attention to detail has gone into this.

I see in an earlier post you say you only recently downloaded ORUXMAPS.  I like it instead of Locus because they have a one-off payment model.   I almost feel embarrassed to say I've downloaded their beta version as well and note their experimental VTM display does not work with your theme.  It used to blue screen completely until their last update, now if it can't load a theme it reverts back to a default theme.  The viewer does work with John Campbell's Voluntary theme.  The viewer is very good - it keeps place names the right way up as you rotate the map. I can't see any error logs so have no idea what the problem is.

Anyway, I cannot ask you to look at it and only mention it in case you are unaware and interested.  So again, the purpose of this post was to thank you from someone who normally stays in the shadows.
