Add Track label Show on map setting - On hover

Andrew Heard shared this idea 10 months ago

There is an On Hover setting for point labels: Settings > Points & tracks > Point label > Show on map: On hover.


But there is no equivalent for tracks. Labels are hidden, simple (always display) or complex (always display). A 4th option "On hover" would be consistent with points, and more useful when there are multiple tracks on the map.

Hello Andrew,

I've got your point with "identical system to points", but I do not consider situations as identical. Mainly because

  • there are usually a lot more points than tracks
  • detecting clicking on the track is a lot more complicated than a simple point

Mainly because of the second point, which may cause a big slow-down in the map scroll performance, I have to decline this idea. Thanks for understanding.


Ahh - understood. Always choose performance. I generally try to just have 1 track visible for that reason too.
