Lightbulb Re: Need help with maps! Invisible heights!

My eye sight, or my patience, or both is getting short these days. So, I've taken to trying to understand "Set Terrain Fill Range" and "Fill Area With Current Terrain." What I've experienced is that by setting a point on the map, I follow that action with setting a terrain fill range. After setting a fill range, I click the "Fill Area With Current Terrain" command. These actions are all preceeded with clicking "Clear All Terrain From Hex - Add Level Terrain" command.

The result appears that the declared fill range value, establishes the range in hex (horizontally and vertically) from the selected hex on the map. The fill area command will then fill the selected area defined by the fill range value with clear and level terrain (that's what I wanted)!

Whew!
