Hi Ricardo,

map shading can be switched on from the content panel (blue tab on the left screen edge > Map layers > Map shading). If you need a bit quicker access to it, place the Map layers button into the function panel.

Hi Michal, thanks for your reply.


However, I want Map Shading into the Function Panel because I want an one click access. Using Map Layers is a two click access, both on Content Panel or on Function Panel. Also on Quick Settings.

There is already Map Overlay on Function Panel. If both belong to Map Layers, why one and not the other? That's the reason of my question: Why there is no Map Shading on Functions Panels?


MAP LAYERS on Function Panels:

Map Overlay: Yes

Map Shading: No

GeoTagged photo: No

OSM Notes: Yes

Hi Ricardo,

in our opinion, map shading doesn't require one-click controlling, unlike map overlay.

Ok, I got it.But on the opposite side, there is Map Shading and not Map Overlay in Presets!

Sorry, but your opinion doesn't make sense.

Hi Ricardo,

presets are dedicated to a quick reset of the whole app when you need to use it for a different activity. Single-purpose controllers like buttons in the function panels are dedicated to toggling between on/off states of various functions within one overall setup of the app. We don't think map shading needs this quick toggle on/off controler (at least nobody else has demanded it).
