Ability to add blank maps to quick map

Alistair Parsons shared this idea 44 days ago
Declined

I use the dark blank map along with distance circles to make a radar view

it would be handy to be able to switch to this quickly and back again

as blank map is still basically a map

could this be added to the quick maps?

Would be handy perhaps to have blank maps part of preset

A quick fix would be if anybody new of a black map in one of the external formats I could use.

Hello,

I'm thinking about this request and to be true, still not sure about its usage. "Blank maps" are available from the top map manager toolbar. They aren't online maps (but the app works with them like with online maps), maybe they are offline maps, hard to say :).

Because it's usage is really rare and I'm still not sure where to place them, please use a temporary solution if it works for you.

Another way to sort this is if we could choose specific map items to show/hide in presets

In the mean time ill use map items , its just a couple of clicks after all

Thats maps not map items

While adding specific maps to presets would be great

unless you could add a blank map, wouldnt help in this case.

If I could find a plain black empty map in an external format, then I could use that along with add map to presets..., but I havent been able find a black external map
