Highlighting of tracks with inverse color

Tapio shared this problem 8 months ago
Solved

When we tap a track, color inverses and the bottom panel appears. Now iften I'd like to have a good overview in crowded tracks.. and get rid of the bottom panel.


Problem: getting rid of bottom panel without losing the track color inversion.


In any case, the track selection is removed and it is no more inverse. DESELECTION SHOULD HAPPEN ONE TAP LATER. The first tap should get rid of bottom panel, a second tap removes the track selection.


Locus can already behave that way, I found after a rotate/back rotate I can zoom and move without the track losing its selection. Which is what we need IMO.

Hi Tapio,

I do not consider this a bug. Well, but is that after the rotate, the highlight remains active :).

Anyway, I understand your point, so I made a small update: tap on the track title in the bottom sheet cause change in the height in the visible bottom panel. Give it a try in the next app version.

Thanks! But why so complicated, is it not easy to implement? I think:


- First tap somewhere: panel disappears

- Second tap somewhere: track gets deselected


Would feel very intuitive. On a map filled with many tracks and in order to be able to quickly compare, not losing the track selection is very much needed.

Probably easy to implement, but I do not consider as useful benefit. In most cases, hiding bottom sheet should remove highlight as you no longer works with the tracks. Track highlighted even when sheet is closed definitelly looks like a bug to me.

Tested it, it's good. I can drag and zoom without losing the highlighting, perfect.

Small thing. IMO it would even be more usefull, if the lower panel keeps its current size on subsequent track taps. Better workflow... EG When in smallest state, that would make track highlighting (again, on many and overlapping tracks) more easy.
