I've been reading there and no, there is no answer for my question. The print preview/printed version of the scenarios uses a tiny size font and we can't change it. At least, there is no function in the program to customize that

That is a trickier one. I can't help you with that.

As far as I know, I don't believe there is any way for us to change the font size. It's just the way things are... Smile

If that is the final answer, it's a shame Jesse. Sad But I think I can live with it Cool

I have noticed that recently, the pdf is generated in a single column, and the text is tiny:

It would be much nicer to have the columns split like it used to be. At least it is readable:

http://i1176.photobucket.com/albums/x334/brdavis3/1.png

I don't know what changed, or how I might be able to change it back. But all of my recent pdfs are created in a single column now.

Good luck.
I've reported this in the bug report system, and put it in the "M44 PDF Output- Bug reports and feedback" thread, but we don't seem to get responses from DoW on things like this anymore.

Yes, that is why I meant. That is the problem I wanted to describe.

Hopefully someone will help us

I printed out for the first time in ages, and didn't like it too!

A solution would be to save your scenario online, then go to the online page, choose print view and print it out.

Maybe a new version of the editor will be out soon, that will have equipment pack units. That would be the opportunity for a fix.

I found another problem with the editor this week. I've known about it for awhile, but just checked to make sure I wasn't missing a terrain tile instead.

I played Breakthrough to Gembloux and Hôtel Meurice face to face, and I didn't have enough towns to set up.

It turns out the church (one can ignore first flag in church) in the basic set is considered one of the 9 town hexes. That's fine if that's all you got; you can ignore that rule face-to-face. But if you have the Terrain Pack, that has a church tile too. Now if you try to enter 2 churches you'll get a setup "!" under validation, which is probably why no official scenarios I know of have 2 churches. But because it thinks the church is a town hex, you can enter more town hexes than 12. Gemblaux has 13 plus 1 church and Hôtel Meurice has 13 plus 1 church.

I guess you can find a barracks or two for a temporary solution. But maybe someone can fix it when the next editor is released?

In the meanwhile, as a workaround, you can add a note in the Special Rules stating that the Church represents a town and thus, no side will use it as what it represents.

If there's no church, OK. But in these two scenarios, they use 1 church, so if you put 2 churches down and say that one counts as a church but the other doesn't... that's a bit confusing.
