PDF resolution on import
I'm looking for the possibility to change the import-resolution for my geo-pdf. Last time I was able to change the resolution to 300dpi like you can see here:
"PDF Resolution on Import"
Is this Option not longer available? Can you please help?
Hi Thomas,Thank you for contacting Avenza Support. Prior to version 3.15 of the app, our app would automatically downscale maps unless an option to force full resolution imports was selected. With the release of the 3.15 update, we introduced a new map viewer which would automatically import the maps in high resolution, so the option to force full resolution imports was removed.However, our users reported many performance issues with the 3.15 update and subsequent patches, with large maps taking upwards of an hour to process, so the function to automatically reduce the DPI was re-enabled in 3.15.3. The downsampling function works by reducing maps that are over 4 million pixels in size down to 150 DPI (from the default 300 DPI import resolution), and maps that are over 12 million pixels in size down to 72 DPI.We are re-enabling the option for HD imports (PDF Resolution on Import), which will be included in a patch which is scheduled for release this week (version 3.15.4 for iOS devices). For Android devices, all imported maps will automatically import in HD. There are plans to possibly bring back PDF Resolution on Import in a future Android release.RegardsEdgarAvenza SupportComment actions

I had 2 questions:
1) Is there a way I can set the import resolution on an Android device. It is clearly importing at a low resolution on my larger maps. I am not the only one with this issue.
2) Can I load an older version of Avenza Maps so I can have the import resolution option? My OS is up to date, not an old version.
To clarify which version of the app do currently have on your device and which OS do you have? For example version 3.15.5 and OS Android 11 for example. You can confirm the version number by opening the app, going to the menu icon (3 dots) in the upper right corner and tapping on Settings. You should see on the screen (you may have to scroll) the version number. This will help us get more context, to help you. Knowing which OS you have will also let us know which APK you may need.
Also if you go to Settings > General, please let me know if you see the option of "PDF resolution on import", depending on your app version the wording may differ. Tapping on that should offer options on resolution on import.
Thank you.RegardsEdgarAvenza Support
