Can PDF's be used as maps? currently they are not allowed as a choice for this.

Maps are better served as smart images. Snip/copy the map from the PDF and then paste into smart image box.

Or save as jpg and select from dialog.

If you used a PDF as a map, you wouldn't get all the cool things that you can do with smart images.

If the PDF will not let you grab the map, just do a print screen, then use paint to Cut what you want.

Then RW has a paste from clip board for the map.

Just added one this way.

If you want to show a map in Player View, right click on the map itself, then click "show in Player View."

If you reveal a map in Topic View, you will see the info as shown in the topic. (My first thought was that would show the actual map.)
