I'm a little bit in hurry releasing a new version with a bunch of interesting changes. I believe all will work as expected. This version comes with a new system for purchases we were working on for a long time. And hopefully, I'll have more time for interesting features ... finally  :).

Locus Map Classic will be published within the next days...

a) Changelog says it backs up map themes. But looking into it, the change I see is it added router profiles.
OK, I tested... It does not use the currently configured MapsVector/_themes, but the default one on intSD, empty here

b) Terminology. Dashboard screen uses "Themes" as a term.

c) Toggling of 2 maps via longtap: nice

After updating to version 4.8.0, the entire menu shifted almost a third of the screen height. Android 8, Samsung A3. The route scheduler is fine, it's just on the main screen with the map. Any idea what about it?

@menion I have the same issue as @Žajdlík Josef - see attached

@menion can you clarify 2 items in the release notes:

1) special "Position" parameter for dashboards - I experimented with "whole screen overlay" & other options + "resize by top| bottom panel" but it didn't fix the bottom panel layout bug reported in screen cap.

2) "united dashboard selection & edit" - this has already been discussed in 4.7 beta. It appears the new behavior is: if dashboard is active then single tap to hide, if dashboard is inactive then single tap to display list. So now in order to edit active dashboard, it must 1st be made inactive, then a 2nd tap to display the list, then dot-dot-dot menu to edit. Previously I thought a double tap had some special behavior but I was fooling myself, it is just same as single tap. This is a backward step from having a "Dashboard Editor" button but maybe there is some special trick.

@tapio
a) ah, custom "mapsVector" directory, thanks, fixed
b) fixed

@Žajdlík Josef
I'm stupid, thanks, will be fixed today

@Andrew Heard
1) right. The issue was caused by the work on the dashboard, but it may be fixed only by the new version.
2) I'm convinced that a single united "Dashboard manager" screen is the ideal solution, but I'm open to improvements of course.

The steps you wrote are correct. Most easy is now a long click on the dashboard button in the panel.

I start dashboard manager from main menu only. No button in toolbar.

Case1: A dashboard was active. Then this dashboard will just be disabled. Manager does not appear.
Case2: No dashboard was active. Manager appears.

This is unexpected UI behaviour. Not good. Atm the command is 50% a toggle, 50% a call for dashboard manager.

I would prefer, if case1 was extended: disable dashboard and call manager.

Just like the GPS manager/gps on/off, the toggling of dashboard should be behind longtap. That would be consistent ui imo.

You may also make the  dashboard entries toggles (bold text if enabled). With maybe the manager not closing when tapping a dashboard entry.

Hmm thanks, good point.

And what about an even more simple solution based on what you wrote:

Dashboard icon in functions panel
- simple click > open Dashboard manager
- long click menu > option to hide if visible

Dashboard icon in the main menu or "All function"
- simple click > open Dashboard manager

The dashboard manager will have highlighted the currently active dashboard and the tap on it, hide the dashboard as well. What you and others think? This should make it really clear, but right a little bit slower due to missing "toggle" on click in the function panel. But don't know how others, but I use always presets and if not, then still needs a list of dashboards to pick the correct one.

start navigation > FC
routing engine doesn´t matter
e.g. from GPS to selected point on map, start navigation locus close immediately

Oki, new version 4.8.1 published, so give it a try.

Most of the problems should be fixed I believe.

Dashboard, perfect behaviour for me. I also turn them on/off via presets and do changes now via the main menu. Very minor thing: if you press that star on top of dashboard manager, it says "install default themes".
Full Backup, themes included, fixed, yes.
