Excellent! Along those same lines, it would be great to be able to change the "scale" of the measuring tool to show yards, meters or even miles instead of just feet So if I want to make a regional map the players can take their own measurements across large areas of land By the way, what w...

I have an upcoming scenario where the adventurers are in the ruins of an ancient Elvish fortress. They happen upon a large room, and except for rubble, and detritus, they see nothing unusual. But then (due to prearranged circumstances), they see a ghostly apparition of what this room once was, an In...

If an item I want is farther down the list than will be displayed, I have to renumber it to appear in the Image Explorer Is t...

What perplexes me is that the network seemed to function just fine here at home with the sample maps and one map I was toying around with. I really dont understand it either. But thats a tech issue I have to resolve here and not a MT iss...

Today was the first time I used MT at our game session. First the Issues- I could not get MT to run over my peer to peer two laptop network using my (large) maps.
