We typically print out maps for search teams. On urban searches the print size of street names is very small. Is there a way to increase street name size or what is the best practice for printed Urban maps?

    We reworked some of this back during the Camp Fire. If you add a Custom Map Builder Layer you can turn on additional street names and turn off some of the other background data that is less relevant in urban areas.

    http://caltopo.com/about/2015/11/09/mapbuilder-pimp-your-topo/ highlights some of these features, the rest is highlighted in this post: http://caltopo.com/about/2018/11/21/new-mapbuilder-roads-option/

    I think that will get you where you're trying to go. No pun intended of course.

    Awesome, that creates a much easier to read urban map!
