Hi Albert!

Thanks a lot for your reply and your input!

It was quite not trivial to outwit MarbleWidget (Marble's API is a bit odd
sometimes), but now, we have a context menu with only a few meaningful
checkable floaters to toggle, along with an option to show or hide the map
center crosshairs.
That's what it was about: A possibility to hide the default floaters if one
doesn't need them. The rest (like routing etc.) is actually not used by
KGeotag and should consequently not be showed.

Thanks for finding this ;-) Fixed with commit 78932011. This didn't depend 
the number of loaded photos, but happened if one tried to do an 
association without geodata being loaded (due to an inconsiderate use of

Me neither ;-) KGeoTag now offers the option to assign an image with the
coordinates of the current map center via the context menu. The map is now
only centered to the selected image if the image is clicked or selected by
the arrow or page up/down keys. When dragging the image or invoking the
context menu, the map stays at it's last position.

Thanks for the commendation ;-)
