Printing selected tracks fr. map w/ multiple tracks/routes

I’ve created a single map (see attached PDF) that has multiple Markers and multiple tracks/routes that are generally starting from the same location. Is there any way to print out specific tracks/routes with the associated Markers for that track/route using the Bulk Ops command? The Bulk Ops command allows me to print specific track/routes(s) or Markers but does not allow me to print out the Markers I’ve set up related to that specific trail/route.

Also, when using the Bulk Ops command to print out a selected track/route all of the tracks/routes are displayed in the printed map – what if I just want one particular track/route to appear in a printed map?

The Bulk Ops command does not seem to allow me to adjust page orientation or add custom images (ie, map legend) to a map. Also, when printing a map via the Bulk Ops command is there any way to turn off the grid lines and UTM coordinates? I can delete a Marker or Lines & Polygons but cannot hide them; once I delete a Marker or a Lines/Polygons I don’t think there’s any way of getting it back unless I add it back again.

Alternatively, is there any work around for something like a ‘Save As’ command that would allow me to save a map with multiple tracks/routes then make edits to subsequent versions of the original map?

    I would also love a way to show/hide individual elements like tracks and markers. This would be very helpful when route planning. Currently if I want to be able to show/hide any individual element, I have to put it in it's own custom folder, which I can then show/hide.

    I agree, the ability to show/hide individual tracks and markers within folders would be very useful!

    So, I hear you on per-line-item checkboxes. No guarantees though. In the meantime as hinted at in the replies, you can create folders and group items that way. As for backups, Export -> Download CalTopo Backup will give you a GPX file with additional information like line styles and marker icons preserved, which you can them import into a fresh map and start deleting away.

    At the moment, Bulk Ops should only show one object per page, not everything from the map as you seem to describe in the second paragraph. Orientation and page size are intentionally fixed to simplify the UI, but the UTM grid is supposed to match the settings on your current map. I can reproduce that issue and will have to look into it.
