[TopSky] Ability to toggle specific parts of the sector file?

Hi there,

We have started experimenting with TopSkyMaps and the functionality is fantastic, but we had a question or two...


Is there the ability in topsky maps to toggle specific parts of the sector file on and off?

Example: "EIDW/RWY28/ALL STARS" is a specific item in the STARS part of the sector file - is there a way we can toggle the display of this "group" rather than having to re-add all the individual waypoints?

Another useful thing would be being able to toggle "ARTCC Boundaries" based on zoom level.

Does this functionality currently exist? 


Many thanks,

There is currently no functionality to toggle sector file items from within a plugin map, and due to the way the map background is drawn and what information about the drawn sector file items is provided to the plugins, I don't think such functionality will be provided in the future either.

For SIDs and STARs, it is possible to draw plugin map data together with the sector file item by creating a plugin map with a corresponding name and folder (i.e. folder "STAR", name "EIDW/RWY28/ALL STARS" in that case). Instead of being a real selectable plugin map, the data in it will be displayed together with the sector file data whenever you toggle the sector file item from the SID/STAR folder in the Maps Window. Any data in the map such as color values or zoom limits will only apply to the plugin map part, the sector file data will be drawn by EuroScope.
