Thanks for the detailed report. I'm afraid late night fat fingers struck. Bugfix version in the first post now.

Just the difference between a "h" and "*". Fussy computers ;)

I had commented elsewhere how beautiful @karlchick's legend PDF was, but only downloaded your one recently. Equally impressive. Thank you. How was it produced?

Screenshots of selected areas, tidied up and cropped in Paint.net, Word document output to pdf. I wish there was an easier way.

I used PowerPoint set to A4 portrait and save to PDF. PowerPoint is so much easier to create graphically rich content.

What would be  really cool is if someone could create a small map that is actually a legend built with all the supported ways and nodes, then you would have a legend built that works with all themes.

I'm confused by your map key (Locus version): http://bit.ly/voluntarykey - is it true your theme can render road surface like in the bottom of page 3? Or only with tracktype key? Or in Locus Map but not in LoMaps from the Locus store? I've copied  Voluntary Locus.zip to the proper directory and when I switch to Voluntary UK this highway=unclassified surface=compacted https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/23682693#map=10/51.9955/-1.8107 looks like every other highway=unclassified
From https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:map_tools:theming in the tag-mapping_20170119.zip ,,XML file used for generation of vector maps contains combination of OSM tag KEY-VALUE of elements that are rendered in Locus vector maps" there is no surface key so I posted an idea to implement it: https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/implementation-road-surface-tag-in-lomaps

Road surfaces are only supported in maps from OpenAndroMaps, not in LoMaps
Tracktypes are supported by both sets of maps.
Hope that helps.

[Edit: screenshots of the road in question, with OAM map and LoMap, now attached below.]

After lots of testing of other themes, I always return to yours. Be it planning or hiking, my absolute #1 theme, a pleasure to look at.
Big thank you!

@tapio Thanks for that! There's a new version on its way. I've just got to update the legend (see earlier posts).

I have uploaded a new version in the first post in this thread.
Changes are numerous:
- Added wintersports with skiing pistes (downhill and Nordic) and sledding, with difficulty shown, as selectable option in Hiking and Wintersports style.
- Protected areas now shown as gold (access allowed) or pink (access restricted) tint  which is most intense at low zooms and becomes fainter and less distracting as you zoom in.
- Surface for cyclable ways now shown, when cycle tracks and lanes, or Cycling style is selected
- Hiking, cycle and MTB routes can now be displayed independently of paths and tracks
- Improved display of hiking, cycle and MTB routes
- Also added: cutting, hedge, row of trees, water park area (corrected), beach resort, cliff diving, free flying (kite surfing etc), climbing adventure (Go Ape etc), roller skating, skateboard, miniature golf, ice cream vendor, emergency access point, historic stone, memorial stone, boundary stone, natural stone, log barrier, ditch barrier, natural earth bank, block barrier, town hall, art work, water works, sewage works, covered parking, private playgrounds; historic buildings, military buildings distinguished; historic areas shown.
- Icons changed for kissing gates, stile, pharmacy, doctors, toilets, recycling (colour change), playground, emergency phone
- Adjusted zoom levels for roads for consistency
- Updated key: https://bit.ly/VoluntaryKey

There's a "Yellow" subtheme (idk terminology); what was your basic idea behind it?

Btw I'm seeing this behaviour of displaying the same area usually brighter, sometimes darker. Seems to be related to draw order. Darker is the rare case. Happens unreliably after zooming in/out. For the screenshots, after the darker one I re-applied a preset and Locus painted it brighter. It's the yellow theme here, oam map Germany, Nordrhein-Westfalen.

The idea was a style with toned-down road colours to act a as a background in conjunction with an overlay, specifically originally Strava heat map.

@tapio This type of behaviour can occur if you have two maps that overlap and you have Autoload Maps turned on for vector maps. Sometimes *both* maps are drawn, one after the other. It particularly affects OAM maps (I think). Woods etc are semi transparent in this theme so as to not hide details underneath them, and if drawn twice (which may happen from the overlapping maps) appear more colourful.
The double drawing does not happen reliably but can often be triggered by zooming out and then in.
I suspect the effect may be more obvious in the Yellow style because the roads attract your attention less than in the other styles in the theme. It shouldn't be anything inherent in the Yellow style as that changes only road colours.
I used to find this bug most annoying when I had overlapping maps with different elevation detail as I got two lots of contour lines which were different. This has been discussed before and the only solution I know of is to turn off Autoload Maps.
