  • (2022-04-17, v:4.1.0) Yanis Kyr: Apple Maps no longer loading
    Is this a known issue? When selecting Apple Maps, nothing is loading.
  • (2021-04-25, v:3.19.2) Jean-Baptiste Blondey: Here Map Creator
    Bonsoir, Serait il possible d'adapter cette extension afin qu'elle soit compatible avec le site Here Map Creator et pouvoir, par exemple, mettre la carte d'OSM sur le site de Map Creator? Merci d'avance,
  • (2020-10-18, v:3.19.0) Yanis Kyr: Google Earth Pro
    Hi there, Google Earth Pro has more recent images than Google Maps - would it be possible to add those as an option? :)
  • (2020-10-17, v:3.19.0) إبراهيم دشتي: Road maps from here.com
    For some time on WME, when you choose "Here + roads" to display road maps from here.com, images for this selection don't show up. It is worth to mention, however, that images for the "Here" option are working fine.
  • (2020-09-15, v:3.19.0) Lukas Pravda: Additional map?
    Hi, any chance to to add Albanian Geoportal? https://geoportal.asig.gov.al/map
  • (2020-09-03, v:3.19.0) Lukas Pravda: new overlay + shortcuts
    Hi, Would be great to seem a layer for https://en.mapy.cz... The support was recently added also by "WME Open Other Maps" script, so maybe it helps a bit: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/32758-wme-open-other-maps/diff?v1=843049&v2=837278 In addition it would be nice, have a way to quickly to hide & unhide (=toggle 0% opacity ) the layer. (Currently, I can use Alt+L to do this, but it results in reloading the layer tiles, which makes the process long and more bumpy.) Thanks!
  • (2019-06-22, v:3.18.0) Okom: Add layer
    Can you add this map as a layer? https://asiointi.maanmittauslaitos.fi/karttapaikka/
  • (2019-05-12, v:3.17.3) Iain House: Waze have changed the ID of the images layer
    Your script looks for the ID of the satellite images layer as "OpenLayers_Layer_Google_210". In a recent update, Waze have changed this to "OpenLayers_Layer_Google_217" so the script no longer functions with Waze. You can correct this and future-proof your script by extracting the correct ID from the Waze model itself, using: W.map.getLayerByUniqueName("satellite_imagery").id

    Can you please inform if there is a version of this for Firefox, and if so where to download it!? Thanks in advance.
  • (2018-08-17, v:3.17.1) Alt+L shortcut on MacOS
    Implementing ALT+L shortcut in the plugin causes inability to use ALT+L in ALL forms across whole Google Chrome. Alt+L is a keyboard shortcut used to write letter Ł in Polish. There should be an option to disable it.
