Multiple Views on One Map

2012-03-09

  • Hi,

    I see that the "multiple views on one map" feature has been implemented in the
    dev version.
    I just want to say thank you for that, as I am working with large maps where
    it is still - mostly - more convenient to have it all in one map, but -
    sometimes - necessary to work on two parts of the map in parallel.

    So, again, thank you for that feature that saves me a lot of time and effort.

    Hi,
    Just to make sure,
    You can open two instances of one map within one FP application, but you can
    NOT see these two instances next two each other, right ?

    Really? Which version? How do you open 2 instances of the same map?

    I too am curious about this new feature. I'm using 1.2.12-4

    What v. of FP do we need and how do we activate two instances of the same map?
    Does this suggest that there might be a way for more than one person to be
    working on the map at the same time?

    We've been using Dropbox as a shared folder for editing but have encountered
    some conflicts.

    At least v 1.2.12_04. It only works within the same instance of FP ! So you
    cannot work with 2 persons (or FP-instances) on the same map. See View > New
    map view.
    regards

    Thanks Jokro. I don't remember seeing that before.

    It could be very useful.
