Your StandardLayout is not visible, probably because therion did not read
configuration file with this layout. To load layouts in some standard file,
need to input this file first, then use copy. Example:

Let file colors.thcfg contains:

layout standard-colors
  color map-fg altitude

To include this layout in your main thconfig file you write:

source my-data.th # to include data

input colors.thcfg # to include file

layout output-layout
  copy standard-colors
  ... other specific settings ...

export map -layout outpu-layout
