Dear MM users and developers,

  Does MM 2020 compress images in a lossy manner after adding them to a map?
  If positive, then how do I disable such compression?

Thank you

Hi Andrey,

Images should not be compressed when adding them to a map by default.

There is a setting that impacts this, go to File/Options/Edit and see if "Copy and insert images at full size" is checked. If not check it and try again to see if that helps.

Dear Sia,
  Thank you.
  I would suggest renaming this option to "Do not compress images for copy and save".

  Does the setting pertain to a currently edited map or to general default settings of MM?

It pertains to your general default usage of the application so once it's set that way anytime you add images the will not be compressed. This is supposed to be the default though, did you change it somehow maybe?

It was ticked by default --- I haven't changed it.
This would be useful to switch the scope of this setting from MM to the currently open/active map.
