Magnifying lens center option

Andrea shared this idea 5 months ago
Completed

Hi Menion, I would appreciate an option to centre magnifying lens just below the tapping finger and above the magnified text. If you wish to drag it aside to read more, it's much more natural to directly tap and drag the center of the circle than tapping below and aside it. Many thanks for your great job

Good day Andrea,

are you talking about magnifier over map ( bottom right button on the map > Show magnifier )? Or maybe small magnifier lens visible during "Quick measure"?

Can't imagine what exactly you mean. At least screenshot with one/two arrows may help me to understand better, thank you.

Hi Menion, sorry for not being clear and precise enough. I would like the magnifying circle being centered above the red cross in the middle of the screen in attached screenshot. The magnified portion should be the image below the centre of the circle (like with a real physical lens). If you wish some part of screen, like a small writing, magnified, you could put your finger on it and drag to the center of the circle where the red cross is also shown. Instead, with the current lens you need to drag it to the red cross that is aside from the circle. This is a small difference but in my view much more natural. If this change requires a minor effort you might implement it as option when you have time. If it is a burdensome change, don't take it in consideration, you have already done an excellent job!

My personal opinion is that the layout is OK.

What is really missing for intuitive movement and orientation is the cursor (cross) in the center of magnification.

Very difficult to estimate the center of the circle of sight.


That's why I use a huge manual zoom map for precise positioning.


The cursor, even in magnification, would be helpful.

Thanks for a feedback. After the short discussion in the team, we decided to implement this feature, so magnifier will be in the centre of the screen covering red crash and the small bonus for Condor, in magnifier will be also drawn red centre cross symbol :).

Hope it will be generally more logical and as easily usable as now. Thanks

It would be logical to determine the location of the lens in the settings. This would suit most users. For example, I would be comfortable with a lens located at 225 ° instead of 315 ° as it is now. The location of the lens at 0 ° will be unacceptable to me. The location of the lens in the center of the cursor does not know, it should be tried in practice.

Isn't this too overcomplicated?

If there is really a more opinions (and some unacceptable opinions), I can imagine creating a small poll with the options, so voting may help.

It's very difficult to make a parameter in the config.cfg file that determines the location of the center of the magnifying glass?

Yep, because every different position requires special icon for magnifier with correct orientation or direction arrow & shadow.

Currently, the layout is OK. Add only the cross.


The center magnifier overlaps the orientation position on the normal resolution. Again, the orientation and movement on the map are getting worse.


We will be there again today with little difference - we will have a cross, but we will not see where (the basic map)


This solution is good for everyone.

Position on the base map - yes

magnifier - yes

cross in the center of the magnifying glass - yes

225? 315? 128.... Left, right... does not it matter?

For right hand control, the momentary position is ideal.

Menion, Why not simplify the magnifying glass? Remove the direction arrow and shadow. It is obvious that the magnifier refers to the place where the cursor is located.

The idea of "magnifying glass" I like. I tried to use it several times. But in the end, I turn it off, as it closes the map area in the direction of the traffic, which is very important to see. As a result, I have to constantly use the zoom. On a bicycle, this is not always safe.

For this purpose, it is better to use automatic zoom control when moving. There you can set the required parameters.

Hi Menion,

Thank you. I hope this can be done as an alternative option to be chosen in Settings. So also the current configuration can remain and be used by those who prefer it.

I would like to discuss the location of the magnifying glass again.

I suggest to place it in the upper left corner of the screen. The shape is square. The side length is ~ 25% of the screen width.

Now the map review is closed by a magnifying glass in the direction of the route.
