Selecting existing track (Android)

Make a context menu by “press and hold” near an existing track log. Select the one you want – “Route upper Beans Burn” in this case and get a specific menu for that track. Then select “Properties” and get a screen with attributes we can attach to the track. We will change the colour to green by tapping the coloured part and change the line style via the “Line style” drop down. The “Group ..” attributes are just a simple text attribute you can use to bulk manage features. In the example the “Group 1” attribute links all user features relevant to the particular trip. Text height allows you to specify the map label size (Name) – nominally in map units (m) although the app might scale this. Text labels for tracks/routes will appear beside the feature if there is room. “Description” text appears in tap popups unless this is disabled in “Options”. Descriptions can be any length.

Here are some recordings of a route between the upper Beans Burn into the Forgotten. We will long press on the southernmost track log.

After tapping the page’s menu button we see several options but select the “Route upper Beans Burn”. If we had long pressed near the camp icon we would see a list of all 3 features.

The chosen route is drawn outlined to indicate it is selected. There is now a menu of things you can do with a track. We now select the “Properties” menu item.

The name will show on map unless “Don’t show …” setting is checked. Description will show on the map tap popup unless disabled in options. The “Hide on Screen” option makes the track normally invisible.

Tapping the coloured bit on the Feature colour setting brings up a colour dialog where you can select any colour you want.

Tapping the “Line style” down arrow shows a list of supported line styles. Some folks like their user tracks to look like the builtin tracks so the dashed options will suit them.
