I did a search in this forum and didn't see that this has been discussed
previously (apologies if I missed it elsewhere).

from there to get the desired shape, but it doesn't seem like the
"Right-click to add point" feature works like the instruction would have
you believe. Whenever I right-click, not 1 but *2* new vertices get
created, and there isn't any predictability to how they'll modify the

(not sure if that's the right way of describing it) such that you get a
bow-tie effect to your Zone, and you then have to move around more
vertices than just the ones you added to get back to your desired shape.

I've experienced this behavior for the last several versions of VASSAL
on both Mac and PC. Any ideas? Did any of that description even make
