getting Points in new Route Planner

Your Route Planner is really very nice and intuitive.

But for me it could be even a bit nicer:

- firstly I would appreciate to have an option to switch off the possibility of getting a new point by tapping on the screen. When I move the map I very often tap unintendedly on the screen and so get a new point which I have to delete.

- secondly I miss the integration of the (Beta) LoMaps POIs when adding a Point - this was possible in the old version and I used this feature pretty often.

"Quick drawing" lets you create a point by tapping on the screen. If you disable it, points can only be created by pressing the "+" button in Route planner.

Open the Route menu, by tapping the "three lines" icon, then open the overflow menu by tapping the "three dots" menu". Disable "Quick drawing".

Hi Klaus,

ad 1) thanks @Taras D, I've no more to add

ad 2) it's possible to add "LoPOIs" to you route, just tap them on map, tap "+" on the popup label and select where to add them in the route (start, middle, end). More at http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:planning#add_lomap_pois

1) Thank you very much,Taras; I did not notice this "menu in the menu"

2) yes, Michal, but this is sometimes not so useful:

when I get a description of a tour and read there "then go to the ... summit/... hut" - which I don't know - I could use the find-function of the LoPoints before; it would be fine if a link to that find-menu could be located e.g. in the add point menu.

I see you miss option to search LoPOIs and then add them to your route. I'll send this in a copy to Menion so that he as developer can share his thoughts about it.

Good day Klaus,

I'll not describe precise what I have in head around this "problem", but it's definitely something I plan to improve within next few months. So I may almost promise improvement in integration of LoPoints in Route Planner and also Locus itself.
