Hello, I’d like to notice that paths/footpaths display terribly thick. Their thickness is almost like residential streets.September 29, 2020 at 14:05 #39931ChristianKKeymaster
Can you give me a Screenshot of the area in question, incl the Permalink from OSM – thanks
Basicly the paths in Elevate/Hiking are drawn nearly as wide as Tracks cause these paths are most important for hikers and on a smartphone in sunshine the paths have to be visible without glases and hiding in shade.September 29, 2020 at 20:15 #39942
Their thickness is almost like residential streets.
In hiking map style paths are exactly half as thick as residential streets
As Christian wrote, paths are the most important ways for hikers. That’s why they are emphasized in the hiking map style, and that way it’s easier to the their location, color and dashes.
If you want something slimmer and less obtrusive, try the city map style.

This is link to the area: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/51.09608/16.99208. The screenshot is with Element theme and Elevate looks the same.September 29, 2020 at 21:43 #39948
Looks as expected. But as written above, try the city style. Hiking isn’t made for this, so horses for courses.

Thank you for reply. One more question: Is there a way to make colors of the map more vivid?October 1, 2020 at 17:37 #40011
Thank you for reply. One more question: Is there a way to make colors of the map more vivid?
The background colors in Elevate are muted on purpose, saturated colors are restricted to routes, paths/cycleway/some roads/POIs/captions, so that these are easier to distinguish in bright outdoor conditions. If you want more vivid colors, you could try a different theme, or some apps have a function to change colors, like map color mode in Locus with high contrast setting.

I don’t know what app you’re using, but if it’s Locus, there’s a high-contrast option – in the app, not the theme. (I think it makes the colors look sick, so I never use it.)
