Do not show main menu when swiping from left edge of the display

Hello,


After upgrade to 2.12.2 where the sliding menu is shown by swiping from the left edge, I accidentally entered the menu SO MANY times that I`m becoming quite furious of it. On a small 3.14′′ display it`s very annoying to make sure I don`t tap too close to the left edge every time I want to move the map. Which is by far the most common task in Locus, at least for me. For example, when riding a mountain bike, it`s simply impossible to work with the map without entering the menu every few seconds.


Please remove this "improvement" or add a config.cfg option to make me happy again. Locus is fantastic app but this feature is a big -1 for me.


Thank you.

finally make it work.


since next version, Locus will by default DO NOT ALLOW slidding from left side as I also think it`s not handy for map app. Anyway directly in menu > settings > map - control & panels will be settings "Open side panel by dragging" that allow to enable this.

I have not managed to find this setting in the mentioned place. Is it possible to switch this menu swipe off? It is really getting annoying when you manipulate with the map and menu swipes out every 5th move.

Thank you.

Activate the "expert settings" by long press on the topleft hamburger menu button.

Then under settings, go to "expert settings"and at the top you wull see "Open main menu by dragging". Just deactivate by slider.
