What do I do if a map takes a long time to load?
In Maptitude, whenever you move your map scope or zoom in/out, the program redraws all of the layers in your map window. This is usually very quick, but sometimes if you have too much (or too detailed) information in your map you may have noticed that your map is taking a while to redraw or is even displaying a “Not Responding” message, making it difficult or impossible to do anything in the program. The following are some suggestions for dealing with the issue:
- You can click on the Maptitude status bar or hit the “esc” button on your keyboard to stop Maptitude from drawing, which will allow you to immediately interact with the program.
- Once the map has stopped drawing, in the Display Manager on the left, right click on the layer that is taking a long time to draw and choose Restore Show/Hide.
- If you have other layers with too much information that are clearly taking a while to redraw, like a satellite layer, turn the layer(s) off while moving around your map.
What do I do if a process takes a long time to load?
You may have noticed that your process is taking a while to finish or is even displaying a “Not Responding” message, making it difficult or impossible to do anything in the program. Maptitude is still processing your request, but requires more time to finish. “Not Responding” does not mean that Maptitude is in a failed state.
