Layers and layer groups
You can toggle layer visibility on and off using checkboxes next to layer names. Bare in mind that layers are visible on the map only when the checkbox nex to the layer itself is marked as well as every layer group the layer belongs to. Also note that turning layer group visibility on not always toggles its child layers. These may need to be turned on seperately.
An example is pictured below. Layer "Apteki" needs to be specifically turned on to be visible on the map, despite its parent layer group being already turned on.
You can find two types of layer groups in our maps. A cached layers marked with which are much faster to work on but don't allow you to toggle their contents on and off, and dynamic layers marked with which do but are slower in response.
Layers not visible in current zoom level are greyed out.
You can toggle all layers at once using button.
It is possible to change layer group ordering and transparency by clicking right mouse button on a layer name.
Choosing "Transparency" option opens a window allowing you to specify layer group transparency through a slider or percentage number.
