Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion More Hex Draw please in the group Hexdraw Users
"I'm more than happy with my investment for this program. The only tweaks I'd like to see are not related to the map-making process, but to program defaults. I'd like to be able to set (once) the default directories for saving and…"

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"Oh, you wanted transparency. Same here. I tackled it by exporting as a gif, then opened in GIMP, and chose the Select by Color Tool (top right of the Toolbox, showing red/blue/green pixels in a stack). Click on the colour in the hex, hit delete, and…"

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"AHA!!! Even simpler solution!!! When you first create your map, choose a background colour of 254-255-255 and you'll get white. No need to fill the hexes with 'white' terrain!! Easy, peasy, chicken squeezy."

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"Ah, you misunderstand what I'm saying. The hexdot comment was an aside - keep them turned off. If you choose 254-255-255 as a Terrain colour, you get white output. Oh, and I enjoy giving help for this program - when I know the answer! :)"

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"Tried 255-255-255 and got black. Tried 254-255-255 and got 'white'. I checked, and the hex dots are 255-255-255 and they show up as white in the output. Weird."

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"Whatever you turn on/off on the View menu will appear/disappear in the output. If you haven't created a terrain colour for the white, that may be the issue for the black output. From the Terrain tab, click the New button, then click the Colour…"

"Hi Mark, You can turn off the centre dots by going to View on the menu bar and removing the check mark next to CenterDots. As for the background, I've noticed that HexDraw handles pure white and pure black uniquely. Pure black is transparent.…"

Alan Findlay replied to ARMAND Patrick's discussion Hide grid in the group Hexdraw Users
"From the View menu, you can turn on/off: hex numbers; hexgrid; hexdots; or borders."

Alan Findlay commented on Jo Bader's group Hexdraw Users
"Hi Michael, I can't find Jo's original solution sent to me, but essentially you need to install the program in something other than the Program Files directory. That means changing the default path during the installation process. I…"

Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion Slopes? in the group Hexdraw Users
"Create a subdirectory in the Templates directory and move all the ASL stuff there. Or just delete them -- but I don't like to trash stuff that might have a use later. That way, the default directory has only your additions in it. The links from…"

Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion Slopes? in the group Hexdraw Users
"There is a slider bar for orientation that allows you to spin the image to the correct angle."

Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion Slopes? in the group Hexdraw Users
"The ASL system has this one covered. The historical maps sometimes have "slopes" radiating from hexsides. For HexDraw, create a graphic that uses dark grey for the slope lines, with a black background. I find it interesting that HD treats…"

Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion Basic textures in the group Hexdraw Users
"Another thing I do is to do Google Image searches for the type of thing I want in graphic form. I did a quick search for "Swamp Graphics", and the 8th image suggested looks like it could work for your needs. Try that for any textures you…"

Alan Findlay replied to Lance Runolfsson's discussion Basic textures in the group Hexdraw Users
"Oops, there IS a Part 4 If you simply want a plain colour to fill a hex, use the same procedure to create a Terrain name for the list... BUT, instead of using the Open File icon to choose a file, use the Terrain Colour button to the left, and then…"
