I am having a problem with making my counters of the correct size vs my mapboard.

Can you elaborate on what you're doing a bit? It's hard to help you with
the level of detail you've provided.

I took some ones existing game scanned and sized my own map. Then I started adding my own counters using the single piece command plus added in my own traits. What I noticed is that none of the pieces really fit the new board. I tried changing the pixel size of my counters but they remain the same size albeit less detailed due to the change in pixel density. I hope this helps.

Where are you setting the "pixel size" of your counters?

I don't understand. Can you post a screenshot?

Sorry for not being sufficiently specific. I meant a screenshot of
how you're setting the size in Paint.
