I'm finally getting around to doing the post-holocaust map of the Western U.S. I wanted to do. I found a .jpg of the coastline and surrounding areas that I've set as a background, and am more or less trying to trace features over. I'm running into two things I haven't found any help for in the documentation (which could just be me being blind).
1. Is there any way to have the program join lines? Since I'm doing this manually, I have to sometimes stop and start tracing, so there's usually some sort of tiny gap between the places when I started. I know CC has functionality for this, and I'm wondering if FM does the same.
2. Is there a faster way to turn the background image on and off than going through and deleting the pointer to the image in the Map Setup menu? Sometimes I just want to get a look at how the map is coming out, but that's a pretty tedious way to do it.
3. Oh, and this is just me being lazy, since I'm sure it says somewhere: is there a way that FM actually can distinguish a coastline or a river if drawn manually? In particular, rivers seem to have a different identity, and I'm not quite sure how to change one after the fact.
