#17676 closed enhancement (fixed)

unwanted entries in imagery menu

Reported by: Klumbumbus Owned by: Don-vip
Priority: normal Milestone: 19.05
Component: Core imagery Version:
Keywords: Cc:


In the Imagery menu all non global imageries, which are available at the current center position and zoom of the MapView appear. This is a great feature but sometimes it is annoying. For example always when you edit in zentral/west europe you get these three entries in the menu (which are listed on wiki:Maps/France):

  • OpenStreetMap (Basque Style)
  • OpenStreetMap (Breton Style)
  • OpenStreetMap (Occitan Style)

This is unwanted in most situations, they only clutter the menu and take menu space which would be better given to real local imageries.

Same goes probably for wiki:Maps/Worldwide#CambodiaLaosThailandVietnamMalaysiaMyanmarbilingual and wiki:Maps/Worldwide#OSMInspector:CoastlineEU (here a little bad workaround is done with the shape.)

I don't know whats the best solution.

possible solutions:

  • don't list <category>osmbasedmap</category> entries in the imagery menu (doesn't solve the coastline entry, but this could probably be solved by improving its shape)
  • add a right click menu to the entry in the imagery menu which lets the user hide the entry
  • add a property to the imagery code e.g. <list-in-menu>false</list-in-menu> or <entry list-in-menu="false">
  • ...?

I already thought about it. I think the best solution is to only list latest <photo> in the top menu, then everything else (maps, old photos, etc. in 1 sub menu per category). I was waiting for #16301 first.
