You press control + z on your keyboard, just click on the main view window before you trt to make sure its the focus as im not sure if it works from anywhere.

Thanks guys,it worked. Anyway i'm using mapview2, downloaded by some good man will's google drive account here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DJ3sCI-izA3N4SFH_xJ4LaFWCo8DWUuw/view

Does that program have a proper homepage and/or a most recent version?

edit: anyway would be nice if that program had a single view mode, like the GIMP. Please tell the author?

You also need to post the RMP (Route files) of the maps AND have to post a sequential list of required tilesets (unless it only uses the default list) to make them work for the average Joe.
e.g. It seems you used parts of the city terrain, did you load it before or after the desert terrain and things like that.

Yes, the loadin order matters? By now i'll stck with map blocks only, routes are a bit more :)
