This was prompted by discussion here. The file here builds on the version shown at the meet-up earlier today
I only idea being tested here is a way to make the same map look different by swapping different attributes for visual elements (shape, colour etc.)
Read Me for the demo:
Switch to Map tab “Dynamic Map”
Select any note (rest are auto-detected) and use either stamp “Change Map to version A” or “Change Map to version B”.
Note the look & feel of the map changes and the Display Expression of the map changes to reflect map style A or B
If you change any note, update the settings by selecting any note (rest are auto-detected), and chose either stamp “Update Map A values” or “Update Map B values”
Only the following Attributes handled by this method: Color;AccentColor;Shape;Pattern;Shadow;ShadowColor;Xpos;Ypos;Width;Height
Note: this is not trying to address the ‘drawing’ view idea also being discussed.
This is very experimental - it is an experiment and not a copy/paste/use example. The answer to any “Can I…?” is likely Yes/probably. Go experiment.
