Why can't I have zones on my hex grid?

It is not uncommon to want to have a regular hex grid, then add some named zones of other shapes around a map border, for example.

Why doesn’t Vassal allow this?

I’m not going to replace the hex grid with a thousand hex-shaped zones. That would drive me crazy.

I haven’t used hex grids myself, but can you not add one to a “multizone grid”? It offers to let me add one in the dialog box (I realize that doesn’t mean it will work!)

Ah, yes. Thanks. Cancel that question.
