[mkgmap-dev] Combining img files to a single map

From Harri Suomalainen hsuomal at welho.com on Thu Nov 24 16:36:27 GMT 2022

Thanks for all the tips everyone.

I've been thinking the choises for a while and it seems probably the 
best way is to include all the symbols I need in a common TYP file and 
convert it all to overlays.

The reason I would have liked to combine different files was it was very 
convinient to make something like one-way arrows separately in all roads 
(no need to include continue in every road statement). Separate files 
have worked fine with newer devices but I still use some older one that 
does not allow many img-files. Perhaps I just need to retire it finally.

Thanks for the help everyone! A combination of different suggestions 
(and tinkering with the styles a bit) should do what I need. (at least 
with accepting it will hurt some older device).
