I'm on 4.17.2 and a gold subscriber.

I can confirm that when i toggle in the side bar, offline poi. With an offline map (your lomap as and example) the points appear and disappear as expected.
When I use an online map again your own supplied map as an example, toggling offline poi doesn't allow them to appear.

An example area with many historic mine adits and shafts.

Hello,

my 2c concerning the (cool!) new map-screen content panel:

– Map themes: The solution with the "Map themes" line appearing and hiding under the "Base map" line is good – it targets both users who like to change their map theme content via this panel and ones who don't because they do it via button panel or because they rather use LoMaps online, etc.

– Tracks & points: The solution in app version 4.17.2.2 is the best so far – the brush symbol (in contrast to the eye symbol) is intuitive.
Temporary hiding by using a long-click including the red icons appearing in the top bar is a useful feature.
Suggestions:
1.
Similar to freischneiders idea, I also would suggest using the "30/16500" numbers as feedback after the long click, but what about graying the "30" out? Greyed out icons or words are normally understood as "inactive". That would indicate that the 30 tracks are inactive at the moment but still loaded. A second long click would display the "30" in black again
2.
In German, "Auswahl aufheben" is a better translation to "Deselect all" (instead of "Markierung aufheben"). It also fits better into the pop-up ;)
Edit: CabrioTourer reported this already :)

– General:
It would make sense to make also the "Map shading" line hidable, because I think most users make this setting once and then don't change it very often. As for me, map shading is always activated, I don't change it ever.

All in all – great improvement, thank you!

Best,
Lucas

- opening of side panel has a small moment of stuck, not completely smooth
- pic expert settings - value might be strange, don't know. I better leave it like it isYou cannot view this attachment.

For me, the new solution is fine so far. The "brush" icon is clear enough.

Temporarily hidden tracks or points can always be recognised by the red icon at the top right of the map and can be shown there.

Quotehow many!!! tiny settings that use just a few users, exist.

But it is precisely these users who use the app intensively and bring it forward with their contribution ... 😉

Quote from: Menion on June 21, 2023, 21:37:49The secondary function, by the long click, is the temporary hide of all points/tracks.
@Menion the new long tap doesn't provide any visual feedback. You don't know whether anything has changed or the long tap has done anything until you return to the map. Could the long tap also return directly to the map?

OK, new update, same functionality points/tracks in map items, just no eye icon. NOOOOOOO. It feels wrong.

the previous point/track visibility toogle was perfect.

Only downside was a state dependent case: visibility state was set to 'not show', and then you decide to enable single points or tracks. Then of course you won't recognise your changes until you decide to toogle the visibility back to 'show'.
Well at least this could be irritating if there's only 1 point or track and you wonder why it can can be seen AND you are missing the current state in map-screen menu.
maybe a rare scenario, though happened to me

Solution could be to toogle visibility  to 'show' in case of 'not show' during event 'enabling points or tracks'. Maybe only with point/track count 1.

Quote from: Menion on June 20, 2023, 13:04:09If you want quick access to temporary hiding, which is from my point of view more "geeky" feature, use a long click!
...Long click on the track manager button, which I removed, because it is accessible enough via Map Items.

I disagree. The eye symbols in Map Items offer quick, welcome, expected and convenient toggles and you removed the convenience. Which was finally usable and within good reach. "Nobody" 😁 uses longclick-hide.

And you removed the possibility to FINALLY hide embedded waypoints. My tracks are full of them, it helps for overview purposes.

Also there must be some kind of bug, I managed to show tracks and at the same time the top right "tracks hidden" symbol was shown.

Maybe you should use the term "My points" in the map items panel for more clarity (I mean the user poi in the database)

I want to temporarily hide tracks, this is now broken. I can't show them again after... hiding.

And what does it do? Hide: no? Rather unload I guess? This is not what is expected here. Here we need a quick show/hide toggle.
The counter of loaded tracks stays as is, after refresh ui it goes to 0.

The behaviour of prior version was perfect for me. A dialog window is wrong here.

Solution. Eye symbol: short tap = show/hide. Longtap: unload all. If none are loaded, bring up track manager.

Quote from: T-mo on June 14, 2023, 23:37:37I suggest to put the legend button into theme's options dialog. I rarely use it but currently it requires extra thumb selection precision as right handed person.

The button should stay there. I use them more often. So she can be reached quickly.
Like T-mo, I also don't like it where it is now. Legend and theme options should at least be swapped (and I also agree, cogwheel for theme options).

Ich habe eine Samsung S23+ und Locus 4 neueste Version. Von Donnerstag bis Sonntag war ich auf einer Radltour mit insgesamt 200 km. Es war meistens sonnig mit Temperaturen um 22 - 28 Grad. Das Handy war auf einer Halterung auf meinem Lenker montiert und lief während des Radelns die ganze Zeit mit max. Display Helligkeit, wegen der besseren Ablesbarkeit. Die Locus App und das Display hat sich meiner Erinnerung nach nicht einmal abgeschaltet. Mein einziges Problem war die Akku Kapazität, die ich mit einer Powerbank in den Pausen unterstützt habe.

I don't mind either way, as it's a good visual reminder of a temporary situation
