Other than using a text label game piece is there an easy way to type and/or draw on a map? I’d like to add highlighted zones along a map to indicate where reinforcements are supposed to enter from.
Basically, no, to add arbitrary text to the map, you need to add it to a text label on a game piece.
However, you can get creative and use image transparency, game piece layers and selection limiting to make highlight pieces that ‘hover’ over the map above all other pieces to mark locations or areas, but allow you to see and access the pieces under them. A few different sizes and shapes will cover most uses.
That’s what I figured. The transparent game piece might be the best way forward.
