How to modify the opacity of a map or layer?

To modify the opacity of any displayed map or layer:

  • Click on the Maps & layers menu and select Displayed maps ;
  • Click on the Opacity button of the map or layer you want to modify the opacity;
  • Move the Opacity slider to adjust the opacity. The display is updated in real time to reflect your settings.

The opacity setting will be forgotten as soon as you un-display the map. In order to save it you can create a favorite map.


How to switch between two maps in one click?

You can use the opacity setting explained just above to quickly switch between two displayed maps in one single click:

  • Display your two maps at the same time, by adding the second map on top as a layer;
  • Click on the Opacity button of the top map;
  • Setting a opacity of 100% will only display the top map;
  • Setting a opacity of 0% will only display the bottom map.
