@HtV: ah perfect, I got it! You tap twice on back arrow, so it returns you to root menu of "Map content" panel, not just to list of map themes. Perfect, thank you, issue fixed!

Glad you found and fixed it. :)
Off topic: I'm very fond of Locus, so many options with such a clear/clean screen, great work.
Before I used Osmand but I never really got to understand/like it.
And very important: it uses very little battery. A few weeks ago I walked for about 4 hrs with my wife and the dog, I take a look at the map probably every 10 mins, took a few photographs, had tracking on of course, In that 4 hrs my battery went from 95% to 80%. I have a fairly new Sony Z5 Compact. :)

@balloni55: without thinking too much about it, from my point of view, theme focused on hiking/biking, should have hiking/biking trails as highest priority. Theme for a car, should have roads as main priority.

And if offset yes/no ... I think they looks quite good :)

About new Locus theme structure Sommer/Winter
Seriously?
I hope this is only an interim solution.
Please reconsider again the logic behind it.
Just waiting for negative feedback soon.

Agree with @gynta, can't see point of season-based themes.

I observe I can no longer merge a track with a route - the route points are completely ignored. I guess because no timestamps. But I really hope you consider this a bug because many times if I forget to reenable track record so I "patch" by adding in a route for my records.

And on this subject I see you have again supported a function panel track record button. This is great. Now fully obvious if track recording NOT enabled. But I think it's been working/ not working/ wanted/ not wanted many times now. Please leave it.

Seriously? Yes, at least for now :-) Honestly I'm not sure if winter/summer is the best solution. But what's the better name for summer theme?
1. General topo & hiking & cycling & mtb  theme ?
2. Summer theme ?
I'm still convinced that "Summer" is the best name for all activities. However I can imagine "Bike & Hike" name.  Give me some reasons or ideas why to rename, please.

I disagree. Those activities don't necessarily happen just in that season. Confusing. Why not just individual activity based themes like Elements LE? Seems consistent with recording profiles, maybe.

Agree with @gynta, can't see point of season-based themes.

Why, if there are season-based paper maps ? E.g. summer/winter outdoor maps for highlands or mountains.

When a user digs profiles up from the GitHub repositories,
they will be hopefully wrapped in some wiki knowledge....  :-)

Season based maps probably exists, but what we have here is not a Summer theme for hiking and winter theme for hiking.
Truth is, that winter theme may evoke using this theme for hiking in winter, which is of course not correct. Maybe some "Base theme" name should be better as it do not specify exactly usage.
As I read some discussion somewhere, guy complain about road theme and Petr suggested to use "Summer" theme with disabled hike & bike tracks. It's perfect, it's different use for this theme. And well, "summer" make no sense here. Sorry, have to agree.

@Andrew Heard: hmm broken merge, I'll check it, thanks

maybe for some countries, but weird concept for others.

Hmm. you are probably right - based on supposed activity is better, like Bike/Hiking versus Cross-country skiing.

In AUSTRALIA-Tasmania more summer riding, for South Australia more winter, for top end only dry-season, each state is very different. Every culture is different. Viva la difference.

In some countries there are ice roads in winter in place of ferry crossings, for example. But I don't know if any of the maps show them as such.

I agree.
I think in that menu we'd find all the elements and set up the transparency for each one.
Full transparency = disabled
