Vizualize imagery layers with non-zero offsets

Reported by: skorbut Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core imagery Version:
Keywords: offset Cc:


When working with multiple imagery layers (Bing, DigitalGlobe, etc.) where some layers need an offset correction, it gets quickly unclear, which layers have a user-defined non-zero offset and which do not.

To enable the user to see this information at a glance in the layer list, this patch writes the names of imagery layers with a non-zero offset in italic letters.

Note: I'm not sure if there is already another meaning defined behind an italic layer name. If yes, I'm open to suggestions to do show this information in another way, e.g. colors, an exclamation mark on a yellow ground, etc.

Nobody will understand the meaning of italic font. That would be another "secret JOSM hint" exchanged by some mappers. A small symbol (with mouseover text) would be a better solution. But that again means also other information may result in more images and this again means a way to handle them ;-)

I agree, italic font is not the best way to go. A visual indicator (like an icon overlay, or changing the layer name...) in the layer list would be better.
