Don I know it sorta applies to this scenario and if one of the next one would have it, see if maybe the below "solution" might work.

Instead of using the Text to indicate the various leaders or some other text, maybe use the token icon (A/B/C, etc) to indicate the leaders and/or text. Since for this scenario, you have the hill hex, the unit and the text and it is VERY hard to read once exported to PDF and printed.

I know in this particular scenario it is the word Irish and the 2 units are suppose to be bold, but I think an icon marker would have worked best in this situation. And thus for any other possible situation where you have a unit on a terrain hex as well.

But also I would like to know why you say the 2 Irish units are bold in the notes, when it is obvious via support. Thus are they really BOLD 2 then ? Please elaborate...thanks

Yes they are innately bold, like dwarves, and therefore bold2 in their starting positions.

I'm going to have a good look at the graphical and text situation over the next couple of days. Whatever I do I'll apply consistently to all of the scenarios. The pdf thing is a real irritant at the moment.

Indeed it is.

Mmmh... Perhaps it's a cumbersome solution, but if everything else fails, one option could be to publish doubled Adventures, splitting the notes between the two versions...

After exporting, a user could always choose to print only the second page of the document...

The second map could even contain some additional notes or clarifications...

I myself have basically just copied the notes info into Notepad and printed it out that way. Thus one can still read the info as well as get a print out of the scenario.

that is probably the only way to doing it (i.e. not printing the 2nd page) until the PDF issues have been worked out.

I know that Yangtze, if i'm not wrong, cannot receive MPs, so I'll say here... Yangtze, may I ask you if in a scenario I wrote to put to use my Lore Air Pack rules my I refer to your "artillery"? The battle in question was the one fought near Fornovo, and French artillery, historically speaking, played a major role there...

I prefer always to use what the community already approved, and your "Two Roses" serie is not only very much appreciated, but well thougth and playtested...
