However, as can be seen from the second attached screenshot, those extend and crop buttons haven't yet shown up in the dialog as displayed on my machine – something I have missed here?Hi John,

Thanks for the detailed report. I'm still writing the docs for this function.

What you have missed is that the extend/crop functions are available only for the tiled maps. The controls appear after such a map is loaded, or selected in the map list.

Presumably you haven't tried the tiled maps yet? Try the OpenStreetMap for Templecombe, or the OS 6-inch map. Adding and cropping rows and columns makes it very easy to get the exact map extents that you want, and the map can be any size, not restricted by the size of your screen for a screenshot. Start with a small area, otherwise you could be loading hundreds of tiles. :)




p.s. Thanks for reporting that the data-entry dialog is appearing in your screenshots. That is something related to your graphics card, it is not happening here. I will investigate. This whole function is still somewhat experimental -- both NLS and Google changed their URL formats while I was in the middle of developing it. By far the most reliable and consistent is OpenStreetMap.

regards,

Martin.
