With the new maps it does not seem to be possible to add images such as graveyard plots to the maps anymore. I used the Demo Dev (7.2.0) to try.

Using the same workflow and coordinates in the Demo version (7.1.1) instead of the Demo Dev version I can see the file in the map when editing a feature (see here (but only visible after pressing edit button)).

Additional information: Map overlay is set to on in both the Demo and Demo Dev version used.

You find more information about how overlays should work in the manual:
I deactivated the demo reset scripts for now to give Andi, whom I assigned it to, a chance to look at it.

  • Target version deleted (7.3.0)

Can confirm that it is now working as expected as you can see in the specified demo-dev links provided before (but only today, I reactivated the reset demo scripts again).
THANADOS is updated too and I removed the issue target version because it was a develop bug.
Thank you Nina for reporting and Andi for fixing it so fast.
