Not able to cancel map download from a third party

Not a Problem

I started downloading a map from here:

http://www.openandromaps.org/en/downloads/general-maps

Version: Install World 1-9 629MB


Locus is starting to download and an icon of the Notification center pops up. I'm able to pause and resume the map's download within Notification center. But I'm not able to cancel the download so that it is also removed from the Notification center.

Hello sonny,

did you tried to swipe notification to left/right side? This should offer to remove this download.

Hehe, right in the moment you were answering I found out this method. Before I 10 times I tried other variants (clicking on the "X", clicking on the 3-line icon on the bottom etc. Maybe it would be much easier find if you could add a button or a context menu when long clicking on the entry to Cancel+Remove such downloads.

Hi,

hmm so you found it, perfect.

Well, in area at top of this notification dialog, is hint "Swipe to dismiss messages below". This should be a good hint to all how to deal with it. Because "remove running task" is not common operation, I did not wanted to add extra buttons here when not needed. Maybe later. Thanks for understanding.

Hello,


I did have the same problem as Sonny and was very frustrated on how to cancel this download. I think the option off "swiping" is not so "natural" and having an option in the menu (cancel job or something like this) could be fine.
