    It’s been often requested that there would be a map key also for all symbols. I finally found a way to do a basic overview (automatically generated) which is now included on the Elevate page and the downloadable PDF map key:

    Elevate has been updated. Mainly to support some new map features and similar treatment of surfaces of non-cycling-paths in cycling/MTB non-cycling paths as non-hiking-paths in hiking.

    All changes:

    4.2.6 08/10/18
    – cycling/MTB style: changed rendering for footways/paths without mtb_scale/bicycle=yes etc., now similar as in hiking: brown means unpaved path/footway (or path without surface information); grey means paved path/footway (or footway without surface information)
    – added watermill, windpump, osmc way color orange, boundary_stone
    – changed symbols for bicycle shop, cinema, rearranged drawing order of some areas

    2.8.6 08/10/18
    – added watermill, windpump, boundary_stone
    – changed symbols for bicycle shop, cinema, rearranged drawing order of some areas

    Version 4.2.6.1 of Elevate brings no new changes in the theme files, but a new license that allows commercial usage of the map styles. This reflects the fact that Elevate is for a while the defacto default theme for OpenAndroMaps and not a bonus advanced theme that was available here exclusively.

    There’s a new Elevate update after a while. With Elevate 4.3 there are new optional overlays: in the city map style small ways like paths and tracks can be switched off, so the map will be more clear and is better usable for motorists. In hiking resp. cycling/MTB it is now possible to mark paths and tracks where the usage by foot/bike is permitted – this is important in countries where usage is forbidden/private in the first place. Also in cycling now ways are marked especially which are allowed for cycling, but are maybe too steep/rough. And as always some smaller changes.

    Elevate 2 is now deprecated and won’t be updated anymore, as it was already announced in the forum. Most apps, like c:geo recently, now support mapsforge rendertheme V4 mapstyles with mapstyle menus, therefore the parallel development doesn’t make much sense anymore.

    4.3.0 01/05/19
    – new switchable overlays: paths + tracks (city), marking of permitted foot/cycle paths (hiking/cycling/mtb) – for countries where usage is forbidden by default or questionable
    – added transformation of bridleways to paths/cycleways if using by foot/bike is legal (hiking/cycling/mtb), transformation of paths with bicycle=yes AND mtb:scale=1+ or sac_scale=T2+ to cycleways but with red dashes (cycling), ft_permit and ft_destination to other positive foot-rules
    – changed old network=mtb to newer network_mtb=lay_mtb, MTB: leisure=track with mtb:scale is now rendered like MTB trails, emphasized access=no pattern

    There’s a minor update for Elevate 4. There was in fix for NL/BE hiking nodes in the latest maps, and the map styles had to be changed for this, too. Also there is a new option to mark easy hiking paths in MTB map style.

    4.3.2 08/07/19
    – changed hiking nodes caption from name to addr:housenumber for maps with new tag-mapping, zoom-min for admin_level=4
    – added option to show sac_scale=T1/hiking on paths without bicycle=* (may no be allowed to use by bike in certain countries)
