The idea sometime in the future.
Not long ago there was a discussion regarding the simplification of Locus for novice users. When I saw the new option item Preset "Advanced" I wondered whether it would be better to go for simplifying control the other way. After installing Lucus everyone can choose whether he wants the Basic or Advanced. Basic would always open the flat screen offered with pre-programmed presets a Bike, Car, Running etc. The user would just clicked the code and Locus would equal start in the most appropriate settings for the selected sport. Do advanced settings should the user ever received.
Advanced would be the same as now. This would Locus has made available to the general user and may not be provided for each added feature to consider how to simplify it so that the application is not very complicated.

CZ: Nápad někdy do budoucna.
Před nedávnem zde proběhla diskuze ohledně zjednodušení Locusu pro začínající uživatele. Když jsem viděl novou volbu u položky Preset "Advanced" napadlo mě, zda by nebylo lepší jít na zjednodušování ovládání jinou cestou. Po instalaci Lucusu by si každý mohl zvolit zda chce verzi Basic nebo Advanced. Basic by vždy po spuštění rovnou nabídla obrazovku s přednastavenými Presety typu Bike, Auto, Běh atd. Uživatel by jen klikl na předvolbu a Locus by se rovnou spustil v nejvhodnějším nastavení pro vybraný sport. Do rozšířených nastavení by se tento uživatel vůbec nedostal.
Advanced by byla stejná jako nyní. Tím by se Locus zpřístupnil pro laické uživatele a nemuselo se u každé přidané funkce zvažovat, jak moc ji zjednodušit aby aplikace nebyla moc složitá.

For presets, can we have styles as well as themes, please.
@John- just interested what styles are you referring to?

Vector maps have themes which have different style options, selected either by drop down menus or check boxes.

@john_percy: almost impossible task for now, that's why I did not added "styles" into this new system, sorry

@balloni55: check new version 5 of "tts files" on Google Drive, thanks

@Josef Žajdlík: something similar we tried few years ago and result was disaster so rather no, thanks for suggestion :).

Like in other languages, best is to copy old file from V4 and update it to V5. News are in "readme" or @ta-ka made nice summary: http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3227.msg46759#msg46759

@lor74cas: ah, because of blue bubble hint, bottom "share" buttons are not visible, damn. Isn't possible to scroll with page? Have to fix it, thanks.
Without bottom "share" button, this feature is useless. Because your location is not shared on public live tracking web, but on special web page, where only people with required link may see just your location.
Use case is: I ride how and wants to display my wife where I am. Instead of complicated setup of big "live tracking" feature, here with three taps I may share url to web page, where my wife will see me. Fast and simple ... well, but "share" button is needed :).

No way to scroll the page, no share button. Good idea I hope to test it soon

Good idea and now works well.
It shows also the data of the image, great improvement.

Point detail > Share button > Share > Other Map Apps does not give the same choices as Point detail > Share button > Map Apps.
I know the range of apps depends on the set up of one's phone but surely the two routes ought to give the same selection. In the first, Locus Maps appear but not Google Streetview or Google Navigation.

It's not a scrolling problem - see this screenshot taken with Full Screen setting off.

Even if results "shouldn't" be the same it is far from clear to me as a user why not, and what I ought to expect in the two cases.

Share button send very generic request to system to share current map center location. Point context menu has a lot more complex system. In case user has more applications that are able to work with point coordinates, in point context menu may appear another button "more" that will work exactly as a button in "share" menu.

Sorry, menion, for once I do not understand the meaning of what you are saying.
Just to be clear, I'm talking about the point detail screen  in the latest beta. I tap on the share button and have a choice of "Map Apps" or "Share". If I tap on "Share", one of the options is More Map Apps. This gives me Locus as extra (though why should I want to share from Locus to Locus?) but not Google Streetview nor Google Directions, which were available in the "Map Apps" route.
I don't understand what is the intended behaviour, nor why.
Edit: The composite screenshot below shows the two routes that lead to the different options.
