Good evening balloni,

unfortunately this is not currently possible. What are your plans around this? Asking if it worth to create some "support" here for these cases.

Hello menion

in some situations it´s not clear (depending on ZL) where finaly my target is.

By playing with icons i noticed, that some "Locus icons" without frame and "Garmin icons" are centered at icon center.

These icons are delivered by locus, so my question arisesa670793758d827f923e1cecff3534f6e

Hello

this is correct. For a few internally defined icons and for probably all Garmin icons, hot-spot is defined into center-center.

Oki, let's try small experiment, try to name some your files with ending "_hscc" ( hot-spot center-center). So for example "my_icon_hscc.png". And we will see if this will work ;).

It works? I'm surprised, fine :).


@Michal, if you have place in manual where you inform users how to create own pack of icons, please add this small hack there as a nice tip. To explain ... it means " hot spot - center center". Thanks
