  • Well ... good luck! I don't know of a cartographic program that can do that job.
  • I don't know what the limits are for a background image, but trying to load one that size into almost anything makes little sense to me. If I was trying to do it, I'd make a copy of the image, reduce the size to 2,000 pixels or less and then load i…
  • I don't use AstroSynthesis, but I have the other products working fine under Windows 10 Pro.

  • I can't see exactly what you've done, so I can only give you tips on how to fix some of the results. SheckyS wrote: First, the mountains it's creating are HUGE! And I can't figure out how to set them to scale properly or how to control the scale …

  • For that size of paper, we've found that the end result continually improves up to a smallest dimension of 1360 pixels (i.e. 1814 x 1360, where 1360 is the smallest dimension, but not 1360 x 1020, where 1020 is the smallest resolution). For printin…
  • Have you tried renumbering 01, 02, 03 ... etc. ... 10, 11, etc.?

  • A good starting point is the FM8 version of the CSUAC. Go here ... http://www.dundjinni.com/forums/forum_topics.asp?FID=14 ... and click the Search option. There you probably will find most of what you want. If this is important to you, I…
  • Click the menu options Help and About and check the version number. Current is Version 8.10f. If you have a lower version, update. This problem occurred with large maps in early releases of FM8, but it's been fixed. If you have the current ver…
  • It might be easier to answer the question if we knew what kind of custom tools you mean. Basically, I have no idea what you're asking.
  • I've step-for-step done what you describe doing, using a 12 MB graphic as a symbol, but I can't get your result. Everything works fine for me. However, two things to ponder: 1) You might want to use the menu options Map/Layers to see if the la…

  • I don't know if our group can help you or not, but I don't really know what you're seeking. Perhaps you could tell us mor specifically what you want to know.

  • Ah so! Now I recognize the problem. I have it too. I've already recommended to Ed Diana that FM9, whenever it appears, should replace the sliders with better controls. They not only are hard to access on a high res screen, but they also are way …
  • It leaves me kind of stumped too. I've tried to duplicate your problem, but I can't. It sounds like something with your FM8 installation isn't working right. I'd suggest that you send Ed Diana a support request at

  • FM8 pulls its fonts list out of the font collection installed in Windows. If you want to add new TrueType fonts, you need to go the Windows Control Panel and open the Fonts tool to install new fonts. The font files need the extension .ttf.
