All good points!

Being new to the forums and to the tools, I am just getting into all of the past debates.

Any suggestions for a Noob to get caught up quickly in usage and issues being address currently?

Thanks!

PS. How often do you come out with updates? Monthy? Weekly? Half-Yealy? :)

Walking in Darkness (FoW)

OK, from what I have seen we cannot walk into FoW. Maybe their is a keystroke to force it or something? If their isn't, this is bad because according to D20 rules, you can move through darkness but with reduced speed. Can this be changed/discussed or can you educate me how it is done if it is possib...

Can you please make the true circle a blocky circle in the next release? Please don´t do this unless you make it an option. Some of us play games where light doesn´t radiate in square blocks. Then at least make the circle eminate out from an intersection like the Area Effect Circle does. This way t...

Please Please Please

The more I use Maptool, the more I get frustrated removing FoW where light is. Why did you make the circle FoW remover a real circle and not a Area Effect circle (blocky)? So the mage casts light at the end of the hall and marks the area of effect. I the DM then has to fumble for minutes trying to r...

Shadows go bye-bye

This may be a user error. I made a really nice frame with Photoshop to use in Token Tool. The frame I made has transparent shadows inside and outside the frame. If I take that saved PNG frame (empty) and put it directly into Maptools, it displays the shadows nicely. It is when I take that empty fram...

Lots of discussion on how to accomplish this.... I am not a programmer but logically speaking, it would be impossible for an application to automatically know that THIS is a wall and THIS isn't. Same things for other types of cover like trees. So since we can rule out the application "knowing", tha...

As long as it doesn't reveal stuff on other sides of walls :)

That would be bad :)

New Map: Feet Per Cell: Miles Per Cell?

I am thinking overland map and tracking where a party is and has been. Of course removing fog while they travel overland and having towns/camps/ruins/ETC tokens when they come across them; however, I noticed that when I go New Map, I only have the option to pick Feet Per Cell. Could you have an opti...

Thinking a bit more on this, why not just add another button in the template setting/color window to be FOG. When turning it on, the template will remove/add fog instead of drawing a template. Fill - Snap to Grid - Eraser - Fog Or like I mentioned before, have an option under the Light portion of th...

Character moves Cached

It would be nice to have the ability to go back a round for whatever the reason. Sometimes there was a serios rule error that killed a character or whatever that makes the game go back a round. It would be a great feature if you could cache the character movements. Just now for example I moved a tok...

Fog of war template

Like I stated before -I am new to this great application so this may already be possible. When removing fog, it would be nice to be able to remove fog with a template. The "draw a radius template" would be a great choice to remove fog along with the other templates you have there. Or you could have ...

Good idea.

I have several maps that are part of one big one. I think I understand what you are saying - to have the ability to add another section to the current?

if so, it would be a nice feature!

I always just figured the maps were drawn with the top at the top, so it never occured to me to rotate the map. Not like it would be very hard. Does anyone have a compelling use case for rotate background image ? True indeed and most of mine are square however some maps might be scanned in; paper t...

Grid/Map Rotation

Hello! Great program! I just downloaded and installed the app. I have to say that it is very impressive! One question: Can I rotate the map or the grid so that the grid will line up with the grid on the map? A simple rotate function, that's all. I am sure it is a simple keystroke that I have not dis...
