Thank you. I can live with that.

No. The soft buttons are activated.

Additional question: Is this a Android thing that the Android bottom bar disappears or is it triggered by Locus? The hidden bottom bar is the reason i have to use the Exit button. See above.
Isn't that related to fullscreen mode of Locus?
Yes, thanx. I had fullscreen mode activated since years but the Android bottom bar disappeard since a couple of weeks.
Shall I expect that the Android bottom bar should re-appear when double tap on the screen and the LM bars appear  - means, the fullscreen mode is deactivated?

When using the button "Exit" in the right bar Locus is terminated without confirmation which is activated in expert settings (confirm on exit = enabled).

I took part in the poll LOL
Miss the actual design too.
Center & rotating are my most used functions (on the bottom bar). And the Route Planner (side bar).
I guess Menion is looking for a new look & feel for Platinum Eternity Edition. Looking forward to see the reason for a new functional GUI design which will be better than the actual design.
Menion can you pls. do a test: try to control the screen with dirty, sweaty gloves on the bike with your new designs... Thanx.

In einem Texteditor Deiner Wahl:
<link href=""></link>
Einzufügen nach </desc> und vor <trkseg>.
Meines Wissens existieren in Locus keine extra Felder für Links. Du kannst Links in die Beschreibung ("Trackdetails") einfügen und Locus wandelt sie in klickbare Links (im fortlaufenden Text = Desc-Tag) um. Das ist aber von dieser Software abhänging. Du kannst die Links in der Beschreibung dann nicht mit "Info bearbeiten" editieren :(
Im XML Standard ist deswegen dafür der Link-Tag vorgesehen.

Edit ist überrascht, daß unter der Fantasie-Adresse doch eine Webseite steckt. War keine Absicht ;)

The former thread is closed so i post it here:

I never noticed this problem, but it will be definitely a little complicated to solve. Tracks stored in Locus Map database has, among others, stored small configuration how they may be loaded into route planner. Any of this config is not exported to any format. So to be able to properly fix it, I, unfortunately, need a) exact steps to simulate it or b) full backup of your Locus Map where will be points&tracks database so I'll be able to use the same data as you.
There are no exact steps to comprehend :(
If i remember correctly the points generated during the editing are stored in an extra table in DB, right? Can i empty this table? Not via GUI - I know...

Tracks are frequently not loaded completely into the Route Planer. See two screenshots here.
The Track shown in the screenshot was generated by Brouter Web and imported and edited in Locus Map some days ago. Now when i load it into the Route Planer the part of the track from start to waypoint 1 is missed. That happens to me some weeks ago with another track. :(

thanks, I'll try to play with it little more, because I'm still unable to simulate it.

"Back press": I've just installed fresh 3.37.2 version
- tap on the track on the map > open detail > click on the right arrow opens list of tracks in the same folder > eye to display another track > back press display list of folders! > back press display first track detail > back press to map .. so 3x back press

Current version:
- exactly the same steps! - so 3x back press

Whare is the difference? As I wrote before, tap instead of the eye on the track preview to get directly to map!

Track editor, Route planner crashes, as usually, needs an error log after the issue happens.

- open track detail, waypoints tab > delete button in context menu works.
- track on the map, tap on track waypoints > popup menu "delete" works

Christian, you seems little angry, but sorry, I see nothing I may help here (not "nothing I may improve", for example back should be reduced logically on two steps by excluding "folders" view, will check it). (EDIT: should be improved in next Beta).
I'm not angry but disappointed about the quality of your new code in existing modules, the way you respond and my wasted time and all the recurrent questions of my bikemates ("why is this broken? When will it be fixed? Last time it ran properly, today not. Why? When will it be fixed again?").
Yes the waypoints can be deleted, but the screen was not refreshed. So it looked like that nothing happened even when i tried ten times. That took me some hours and phone calls to figure it out and report back to the mates...
A similar case happened some weeks ago when waypoint could not created. Quite boring :(
There are still some issues to report.

Note: I'm the one who recommended Locus Map to all my bike and running mates to have the same platform. Now I'm the one being asked when something is not working properly and the one to have to care about. Now we wait for the new Locus Map Platinum Expert Eternity Version and it's amount of fee and check the quality of the app next year. When the errors remain in the developement process we will switch to another app all together. An app is a tool not a lifelong task for users. Imho. Our task is to plan some tracks easily, go outdoors and have some fun guided by a reliable app and than forget all the stupid things of the working days. When the app produces some errors the stupid things remain and the fun is broken down.

When the Track Editor or the Route Planer crash I'm p***** 'cause all my edits are gone and the time is wasted. I have to do this again with the fear of that can happen again. Some times I do it three or more  times.
So I will NOT spend any more additional time in creating debug logs, sending big personal data over Internet, writing description in the forum with screenshots or something else! As I wrote it some years ago I'm not a beta and software tester nor for money. Do you have an sufficient error reporting in your App? Fine! Otherwise you have to figure it out by yourself because you are the responsible person. Call me old and conservative - in my youth the developers debuged and tested  the software excessively by itself BEFORE releasing it. But that is quite oldfashioned nowadays. Today the users do it. Except me.
Thank you for reading and understanding.

And thank you for the improvement of the "3x back press" by excluding "folders" view. An additional item in track popup would be enough.

problem with generating preview sound quite complicated to me. What means "start Locus from side panel"? Maybe the video of this process is possible?

Display additional track ... click billion times? :). I see that first back press display list of folders and second click than return to the previous track. So maybe the first click does not work as before? I'm checking the app source code and see no difference, hmm. Anyway fastest how to display new track, same as with points, is to tap on track overview. This immediately display track on the map and return directly to the map screen.
Side Panel means Samsung UI's Side Panel / Edge Display.

Regarding the number of taps to go back on map screen - there was a faster way before :(
A "folder" item in track popup would be helpful.

Sometimes Track editor (since ancient times) and also Route Planer crash without any warning when it is used excessively. I guess it's a matter of memory. This happened frequently on my old Note and on my new S8 also.

Waypoints stored within / merged with a track can not deleted since last final version. I'm so tires of this.
btw: the user manual is not up to date.

Since v3.40.x or so: tap track on map screen - tap into popup to go into track detail screen - tap on small arrow to go into the folder the track is stored -  activate another track by tapping on the eye symbol  - then go back by using the Android back button.
Before v3.40 you tap two times and you are out of track manager and back on map screen - if i remember well. Now you have to tap billion times and go back the whole bread crumbs.
Possible Workaround: please provide a link in the track popup for "(go into) folder". I remember there is always a request on the help desk.
Thank you.

Galaxy S8 w/ latest Locus final release:
Screen is locked (w/out PW) - starting Locus from the side panel - share track preview - preview is generated - tap share button - Locus goes to background - Lockscreen is shown for one second - then Locus is shown again with map screen and track. No selection of apps :(
Workaround: close Locus - unkock Screen - starting Locus again - share track preview works.
I miss the possibility to unlock the lockscreen or a hint of "unlock screen at first" or something like that.

Modify track with many waypoints: Screen turns off (sometimes), Locus crashes (always).
since ancient times  :(

Bug in 3.39.4
If a track contains additional waypoints - created or imported - and the track is changed within the routeplaner and then saved / overwritten, the waypoints are disappeared / deleted by Locus :(
