On saving a recorded track, one of two panels are displayed

Andrew Heard shared this problem 3 months ago
Solved

I've mentioned this issue (I think it's a bug) a couple of times in the Locus forum but never got any acknowledgement or comment, so here it is again as a separate topic...

After you save a recorded track normally you get a "bottom slide up-down panel" similar to screen capture below. In particular note the dot-dot-dot menu in bottom right side of the panel:

However sometimes, maybe 25% of the time, Locus will instead display this newer "bottom slide up-down panel" introduced a few versions ago. Note the slightly different menu; only 4 buttons; no dot-dot-dot menu; this is the panel that is displayed when you tap on an existing track on the map:

This seems like some subtle timing bug/ glitch to me. I'm surprised no one else has reported or commented on it. There's nothing special with my settings or behavior to explain why one or the other panel is randomly displayed.

The bug is actually more general than the post subject suggests: Tap on a user point or track: generally a panel with 5-button menu is displayed, but sometimes (far less often) the a panel with 4-button menu is displayed.

Hi Andrew,

thanks for briging this topic to public. I noticed rarely this as well, but was never able to simulate it when needed. As you wrote, this is some "race" problem. I'm aware of it and will try to invest more time to fix it ... thanks for now.

Am glad you can confirm it Menion. Yeah I have tried lots of times but have no clue how to reproduce. It seems to happen more when saving a track (20% of time) than when selecting existing point or track on the map (5% of time).

Hi Andrew,

let me know if this issue happens also with the latest 4.8.2 version. I believe I made a few improvements to the track screen. It should be now even a little faster than before. Thanks.

OK thanks Menion. No problems so far (but only 1 save). Will probably need a few weeks testing (at my rate of track recording) to be more confident.

Oki, thanks. I'm marking it as "solved" for now and feel free to open this topic again when needed. To be true, I made no changes in the POINT detail but I've also never noticed this problem there. We will see. Thanks for now!

With the Point details screen, I've seen this behaviour again quite regularly lately. Probably never went away. Seems like some timing issue. Somewhat confusing but workaround is to just tap Back button then tap the point a 2nd time for the correct screen to be displayed.
