Map grids: PREFIX

Postby Stiglr » October 27th, 2014, 6:59 pm

For modules where there are multiple maps, (perhaps each with the same grid numbering scheme), it'd be nice to be able to add a PREFIX in the grid numbering window. So, if you have a North map and a South map, you could have a N- or a S- before each map, so that it's crystal clear which of the hex 2614's is referred to in a movement report (N-2614 and S-2614.

This would be in addition to a separator, by the way.

This is already done in the mod I linked you and is not a needed feature
request. Pay specific attention to the two zones "N" and "S". If you
explore the zone properties you will see it is formatted to return
$name$$gridLocation$ in its Location format. Thus it will return N2413 or
S1689 etc..
