Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] OS Map (v3 maps)
« on: April 20, 2020, 11:57:11 »

By the way, I've not managed to download your zip satisfactorily using Tapatalk.

I have always troubles with TT downloads. It either truncates the file, either downloads some thumbnail image of the attachments.

All 3 files ( theme + 2 PDFs ) had the same size I guess like 14 kB, instead of cca 500 kB.

 I always go rather to web to download anything there.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] OS Map
« on: April 19, 2020, 12:02:15 »
It looks like very fine theme, but I confirm for OAM Austria ML map v4 from July 3,  it is not listed among available themes for the map.
Not sure about the new maps provided with Locus compatible POIs DB.

And WOW!! The PDF legends are positively 1A quality !

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion

I withdraw what I have withdrawn ( :-) ) about the scale ruler in the route planner: 

The ruler is there ( even if it should rather share its  location with the main map screen).

But when a route is being created, it disappears, as it is overwritten by the route stats bar. If the route is cleared, it is back again.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.45.+ ( 14. 4. 2020 )
« on: April 16, 2020, 09:56:19 »
...there is a big problem with setup of profiles. It comes from history and also from the united system across all routing systems in the app. All profiles have to have unique identification that is hardcoded in the application so it cannot be dynamic (like that user say "I want six hiking profiles")....

What about just implement the profile icon assigning/resetting ?

Consider adding a regular routed segment as typing a letter on a keyboard, while adding a straight segment as a CAPITAL one.

Consider explicit profile switching to straight line as CAPS LOCK activation.

Consider long pressing route or + button as using SHIFTed letter to type just 1 or 2 CAPITALS.

What is wrong with SHIFT key ?

I see just 1 issue, why to use right SHIFT and not left, if right one is already taken ?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus vs. BRouter, path confusion
« on: April 15, 2020, 09:47:29 »
I have in Android 10 the BRouter folder in the root of internal storage, same as the Locus one. I have never noticed any access problem to Brouter profiles in Brouter/profiles2, especially with BRouter API10 accessing Locus points in the opposite direction.

Be aware Android uses a Linux file system with case sensitive names, what is a frequent issue if a Windows user writes names carelessly.

Scale ruler: I withdraw my prior comment about missing scale ruler in the planner. I was tricked by the fact that while the main map window has it at the top, the planner has it at the bottom.  In fact I had known it was there, but I had forgotten about it, while I was looking at the top, seeing a missing ruler. :-)

until this discussion I wasn't aware long-tap on + did anything, probably many Locus hidden gems in same category, but now I know the extra function I think its useful & consistent

Hi Andrew,

I have been trained by various  applications  and electronic devices to try long presses on control elements ...  "what if it does something ?" . Especially if I am not able to invoke a feature that is there.

I have discovered the long press "+" does what it does, without prior knowledge it should be somehow possible.

Similarly, long press "-" clears the planner (after confirmation).

Long +  click is currently bringing set of alternative ways of the point selection, similar to one in the navigation dialogue.

But it is the same as in LM3 Pro.

Are not all polls about what anybody wants ? But it may be what he wants for himself or what he wants for all to have overall more pros than cons.

I have voted "Long click on "Route type": add manual segment between last point > map center",
I use long click + for point selection much more often then straight segments, and the latter would be still handy via other button..

I got it the same, as I have expressed above, which I see as quite nice.

( * = "long press routing button" )

+   = routing segment(via currently selected profile)
+   = another routing segment
*    = straight segment
+   = routing segment
*    = straight segment
*    = another straight segment
+   = routing segment

I do not use such approach often, but I understand for heavy off-road hikers it would be useful feature. It is not only a workaround for missing/wrong OSM mapping, but also for the true lack of OSM ways to be passed, or their intentional avoiding.

And LocusMap is for heavy off-road hikers more than most of other applications.

It makes sense, creating directly a straight segment by long pressing the profile button.

And one would avoid switching the profiles.
