Please add quick map selector to Route menu, or make Route menu editable for adding user menu items. Thank's

I think old route planner directly on map was more useful. Because it was very simple for quickly measurement between many dots.

what do you mean by "quickly measurement between many dots"? Doesn't any of following methods of measuring suit you?: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:measure

I think the need of map switching is not so frequent, so escaping the planner, switching the map and resuming the planning is not a big deal.

But it could be convenient for users using it a lot.

If map selector, then also theme selector.

But with under Theme for Elevate (openandromaps)

Elevate / hiking

Elevate / mountain bike

Elevate / city

Elevate / cycling

as it is also desired here: https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/save-maps-theme-specification-in-presets

... and app complexity grows :)

I'd say that what freischneider is saying is a little bit different. Anyway, I can't see theme selecting (on the fly, while planning a route) being more used than map selecting (mainly satellite/tourist maps).

But the best, as always, would be to have option for both in settings. Do you want map/theme selector cluttering your route planning screen? OK, it would be your choice.

Still it is essential, otherwise route planning on PC with Brouter-web or Openrouteservice will stay easier and will be prefered.

For me, Theme switching is even more important than map switching...
