Thanks for tests guys. Oki, few more updates to next version

- hopefully fixed local links, thanks John. This "mapsVector/_themes/freemap_slovakia.pdf" inside X.lnk file works for me now
- support for more legends based on locale. Just add two-letter language code to the end of files, like X_en.pdf, X_de.pdf
Thanks, works well, even with
- theme.pdf (engl. for general use)
- theme_de.pdf (only for german)

I've worked out that I can use a .lnk file to map multiple theme files to the same pdf legend file:
  • my_theme_v3.xml
  • my_theme_v4.xml
  • my_theme_legend.pdf
  • my_theme_v3.lnk = "mapsVector/_themes/my_theme/my_theme_legend.pdf"
  • my_theme_v4.lnk = "mapsVector/_themes/my_theme/my_theme_legend.pdf"
The above would allow to have a version of the theme for v3 maps and a version for v4 maps. But both use the same pdf legend file. (Which menion originally said was not possible...)

I've tested this and it works with the latest release of LM.

Question: Can I rely on this usage of a .lnk file (is this an intended usage)?

I'd like to know that this will remain in future releases of LM before I start to do anything time consuming with theme/legend files.

As far as I know that's one of the points in having this link functionality.

If there aren't any suggestions on how to make it better, consider as a final solution.

This functionality is fine.
I've got somewhat frustrated at trying to set up responsive HTML pages for the legend for my themes. I seem to have forgotten a fair bit of my HTML and got left behind in current developments.
I like the look of the Locus version 3 key. Is there any way to make that available as a template?

@john_percy - I'm sorry but what HTML template do you mean?  The page below ? https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps:legend

@voldapet
I had in mind the html page that I find in the app by a long tap on the internal Locus v3 themes in recent versions. I've only just realised it is exactly the same as online knowledge base page and is consequently not what I would want starting from scratch.

I see. This legend is quite obsolete and I'm planning to create the new one because our plans with LoMaps
