All maps from a folder displayed at the same time
« on: April 28, 2021, 15:24:41 »
In Locus 4, contrary to Locus Map Pro, all maps of one type from one folder show as 1 map, instead separately, in one folder. So I cannot see each map separately, they are all displayed at the same time. I cannot find any other way than to put each map file in the folder with it's name - and that's not how it should work.
It concerns only sqlitedb maps. Vector maps were foldered correctly
I have offline maps on SD card and sqlitedb maps have been read by L4 automatically, I didn't add them to application manually.
Is it a problem with L4 or I am doing something wrong?

Hi,
there is for sure no difference between both versions > both works exactly the same. So there has to be a difference. May you try in the Offline tab, select the top "sort" menu and try options there. It may help I hope.

Menion, thanks for the reply. Of course I tried all sorting options, right at the start of my tries to solve this problem. I guessed that this part of LMPro and LM4 are supposed to work exactly the same way, but for me it looks like I've described and pictured before and now again. If you don't have any idea how to solve it, than I'd have to go with putting all of those maps each in it's own folder - which is a bit uncomfortable and frustrating.

Why the path to maps on the screenshots is different? You add them as external maps from SD card, but do you specify exactly the same path to the maps/directories?

Alternative, little secret solution, is to name directory you do not want to merge like "My_directory_split". The word "_split" in the end is crucial and should prevent Locus Map to merge found map into the single virtual map.

_split has done it, thank you!

I have no idea why there are different paths to this folder. What's another strange thing is - when I use 'Add offline map' I get the screen Offline map saying "There's nothing here yet" - although, of course, there are plenty of maps there...

So, my two suggestions for improvements:
-add option to folders - to choose for user if they're should contain splitted or merged maps
-there is the screen you see when you try to add offline map and chose from the menu 'Local drives', showing ext_sdcard and Internal memory. Please remove this option from menu and let user (who tries to add a map from SD card) to get there just by moving up folders or touching the SD card icon - it's terribly not obvious to look for the SD card in menu, I spent like an hour trying to add map from SD card.

When you tap on the "Add offline map", you firstly get a screen with a visible list of what you have already added! Here you have to finally start adding maps by the "+" button. But you probably already found it.

Moving between internal memory and SD card ... well, I know. There is just always something more important to do ...  :-\

khmm... I am an addicted Locus user for about 5-6 years;) I wouldn't bother anybody with such basic things. As recently maybe I wasn't clear enough about this screen, and it's quite interesting what I see, maybe for you too - so please have a look at the ss.

Hi,
what you have on screenshots is exactly what I've described.

1. screen, content in the map manager
2. screen, list of external maps (or directories) added into the app (no maps on your screenshot)
3. screen is a file browser that allows to pick single file or a whole directory
