Display already visible points/tracks also in track editor

My suggestion is to let the user decide if he/she would like to hide the points, other data on the map. I presume that You have string in the programming to "Hide" all data except the track in focus, before the "Tools" window comes up. Put a button or something like to let the user decide "Hide all data, quicker?" Yes/No What do You think.

I have no negative experience of "other data" before when editing trackpoints

Have a nice day

Good day Jeff,

we have rewrote track editor to new version with main purpose in the mind: modify recorded tracks with tools, that allows to fix technical and personal problems that may happen during recording. Purpose of track editor is not to modify route for a future using, planning for trip etc. For this purpose exists Route planner that should offer all tools, necessary to plan route for a future usage (navigation, guidance).

Because of strict usage, visibility of other content (tracks, points) is not wanted because it will only slow down usage and bring extra noise during editing. Thanks for understanding.

Menion,

Thanks for the prompt response. Your understanding of how Locus should work is obviously much much better than mine, but please consider allowing other tracks to be viewed because they are not always just noise. I understand that sometimes they are noise, but sometimes that are important landmarks that need to be visible during an edit, i.e. like roads and streams are left visible since the base map is still visible. For example, a track may need to be modified such that it runs along another track or avoids another track to fix glitches created during a GPS recording. Maybe it would help if all other tracks could be turned off or left on during editing by the user. For now I will try to work with both track editor and route planner to do what I need. Thanks.

Hi,

I'm not sure what exactly the problem is but may you please first look into our manual if you use the route planning/modifying tools properly: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:editing

Hi.

Thank you for your reply.

I saw many manual.

But I can't answer some of my questions.

To describe it in detail, it is difficult to match tracks and points because the points already displayed during modifications are not visible when modifying the tracks.

In conclusion, it would be more useful to modify the track if it were set so that I could see the points I set when I modify it.

I hope that these inconveniences will be corrected.

thanks.
