Quote from: joeloc on May 26, 2023, 10:47:42The new search broke a very vital feature: I can no longer locate something in Google Maps and then share the point directly to Locus. That used to work nicely, now Locus simply opens the search dialog and then does nothing.
@joeloc, @tapio - not even a red pin is needed, I just long-tap in Maps > share > LM4.

just to be clear(er)
1st LM run with search: massive zoom out
restart & 2nd LM run with search: no zoom out
some timing glitch obtaining online search results?

PS. 4.17.1 location Croagh, Ireland, although I don't think this is relevant. 1st run of new version & 1st online search - tap "bar" in list = map zoomed out ruler = 300km - 1st screen shot. BTW I tap zoom+ to commence zooming back in (after annoyance) & LM4 crashes (although can't reproduce)! 2nd online search - tap "bar" = one POI near the current position is CORRECTLY displayed & map is NOT zoomed - 2nd screen shot. Observe the 3rd screen shot has top panel. So, apart from the crash, this sounds like a timing glitch to me - you said a zoom-out only occurs if no results - it seems in 1st search the asynchronous results didn't arrive in time. And I can now reproduce each scenario approx. 50/50.

Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 24, 2023, 11:43:49Strange, this shouldn't happen. We will check this. Can you please write what did you exactly search and what was your initial map position before the search?
I had detailed instructions when 1st reported but can no longer reproduce it myself sorry ;-( Maybe it was the previous beta version. I was in Dingle, Ireland. Even now for the "bar" example many more icons are displayed compared to a week ago - is this possible?

A repeat of another suggestion (see screen capture) - when the map is hovered over an online search POI, could there be a popup with details, and/or the list is scrolled to show that item?You cannot view this attachment.

Quote from: lor74cas on May 24, 2023, 12:48:23We thus avoid useless occurrences of results that are too distant both on the map and in the list.

Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 23, 2023, 11:06:49The app zooms out only to be visible nearest result together with your previous location on map, so even if you have Barcelona in the list the app will not zoom out to it in case there are closer results.
but there were nearer visible results and it did zoom out to 2000km, otherwise I would not have mentioned it. But with the GM long-tap it's no longer an issue.

Quote from: michaelbechtold on May 22, 2023, 20:19:22What I do not understand: before the new search system, Locus DID use Google APIs, right?
thanks for the background/ insight - hence my confusion over this new scheme. I thought it was better in the past, & now I finally have an answer as to why. It wasn't just my problem.
Quote from: Menion on May 22, 2023, 12:53:05Missing values in magnifier ... well, we may consider it as bug, but on the background, it is a technical limitation of the system I choose, sorry.
@menion - no worries - the text size setting was a good workaround, funny (after all these years) I'd never tried that setting before now!!

thanks for the tip on long-tap in Google Map - that works & is a GREAT "work around". until the latest LM Online Search was released, I've never bothered with online search or even Google Map. The offline POI have been sufficient.

I'm happy to "agree to disagree" whether the initial online search is within the visible map or not. I would rather see list results sorted & displayed by distance (method of sort could be a setting/ personal preference), and in which case Barcelona would never be shown, and the map wouldn't be zoomed out. if we do compare with Google Map then it doesn't zoom out by a huge distance

or even... have the "Barcelona"(s) in the list BUT only change the zoom if & when that item in the list is tapped?
Quote from: michaelbechtold on May 20, 2023, 06:50:57And yes, Andrew, config transfer from Tab was my plan, too. Done last night and WIN! 4.5%/h.

I will now compare the disaster config with the good one and report here.
From look and feel and handling I sense zero difference, so the difference must be something very interesting and hidden.
well done!! will be very interesting to read the difference!

Quote from: Radim V on May 19, 2023, 16:33:30I don't think Barcelona for "Bar" is that irrelevant.
@Radim - maybe the search should consider the current zoom level? Barcelona may be relevant if close by, but not when 2000km, and the map is zoomed out to display, non-existent map/ no offline map even exists. This zoom-out to 2000km happens on most searches which is bad.

Did you check why a share from Google Maps doesn't work? This workaround would help alot.
Mine has always been around 4%/h and goes down independent of total %. Lately it's going down a bit faster as battery is getting to end of life.
You could backup settings on good device, copy & restore on bad device, to test apples with apples? Something is very badly wrong. Sorry to hear.
You could create a help topic for voting, but I like the new colour scheme.
