how to report "Place Marker"

So I have a piece prototype with the trait “place marker” to place a combat marker above the units.

In the “keystroke to send after placement” I type “CTRL K” .

After that (below) I add a trait “Report Action”, watch for strokes “CTRL K”, and report format “marker has been placed at $location$”.

I expected my message reported but it’s not.

What is my mistake? What should I do different to get such a message?


First of all, traits operate from the ground up so placing your Report Action under the Place Marker trait may be the problem.

Another thing you may try is to use a Trigger Action to accomplish this with the first Key commend to place the maker and the second to report it.

thanks for your help, it’s working now.
