when I try to download a KMZ file with a custom map source, it does not show the custom layer. It just comes through as white. In this example the custom map source is from google sat ({x}&y={y}&z={z})

Will caltopo download custom map sources when exporting to KMZ or PDFs? I have a paid pro account.

    Hi Eric,

    This appears to be a legit bug that we need to fix. It should be possible.

    Thanks Julie. I appreciate the response. Is there a bug tracker of some
    sort I can follow?

    I'm curious how far out your backlog is for whatever priority this bug will
    be set at?

    We don't have any kind of public bug tracker at this time. We'll take a look at it this week and are expecting a rather easy fix, but no promises on time to completion.
