Map designer for very large maps (4k)



Hi !!

I'm trying to design my first "pre-production" map to take advantage of a large 4k display. My own monitors are 1920x1080, so trying to arrange elements on a map for a 3840x2160 monitor is very difficult with constant scrolling of the scrollbars on my desktop computer's monitors. Is there a way to zoom in and out of the map designer to aid in visually designing my map?

4k maps zoom zooming

Hi there,

Maps do indeed not work very well yet with 4k displays. See also this thread, also mentioning an additional approach using Grafana.

Kind regards,
