I understand that the key for the maps is a pop up that can be accessed from the top right of the map but that some browser settings block this.
Mine does.
Would it be possible to also have this as a downloadable pdf?
I would find it very handy.

I've never noticed that link before, so thank you for that.
However, it didn't answer one thing that has been puzzling me. A route I have just created is shown partly as a purple line and partly as a green line. What do these represent? The route summary shows 4 different (in this case) types of road/cycle way surface, so I expected four colours for the route to show me busy roads, paved roads, traffic free and unpaved traffic free

ah so I'm not the only one who's eagle eyes didn't spot that tiddly link :)

the green line you refer to I think indicates a bit of the route which is traffic free/off road, on an old railway track or the like.

Others will be along soon with more info.

Hello.

I wondered if it would be easy to add a special via point that additionally indicated a printing split:

ie allowed a route's cue and map printouts to be automatically split into sub-sections (days/morning/afternoons etc) of cycling?

Thanks for all the maps. :D

No, green means unpaved, whether motor-free or not. See viewtopic.php?f=16&t=128273&start=150#p1004386

Yes, definitely on the list. I'm just thinking about the best way to do it.
