Has anyone discovered how to add overlays to regional maps? As an example; I pulled the map for Cheliax (Pathfinder Setting). It ported fine, it just no longer has any towns, cities, locations, or writing of any kind. Just the bare bones map. This is fine, but I'd like to draw in there at the minimum the political boundaries to differentiate this particular map with that of say Andoran, Cheliax's neighbor.

Not sure I follow. Are you referring to importing the image to paint then importing it from paint? Or is that a hot key I'm unfamiliar with?

You can't do any map editing in RW. You can add pins to it, reveal the map, reveal each pin, and reveal FoW. As far as I know that's it.

Any regional boundaries or other such modifications would have to be edited onto the map before you pull it into RW.

Snipping tool is a built-in tool that comes with windows 7.

It's not part of Realm Works.

With the Snipping tool, you can capture part of your screen and save it as an image file (png, gif or jpg).

I'm attaching a jpg I just took of this screen.

LOL, I've had winblows 7 for years now and never knew about this tool. Never once had a need for it until now. Thanks everyone.

Thanks BoomerET for the explanation.

I've found the snipping tool to be a godsend with RW. I can zoom in on PDF's, crop images from the web, create smaller locales from large maps, etc. Microsoft did good with the snipping too; it almost makes me forgive them for unleashing Clippy on the world.

In the past, I had just used shift-PrtSc, and made changes in GIMP, but the snipping tool comes in handy when you need quick and dirty images.
