Grid Numbering

Specifies how labels are assigned to cells in a Hex or Rectangular Grid on a Board.

Order: Label cells by row/column vs. column/row

Separator: Text to place between the row and column, such as a comma

Numbering: Alphabetical (A,B,C, ... AA, BB, CC, etc.) vs numerical (1,2,3 ...)

Descending:   If checked, numbering of rows/columns begins on the bottom/right edge of the board.

Leading Zeros: One leading zero means always use two digits for the row/column.  Two leading zeros mean always use three digits, etc.

Starting Number: The number of the first cell ('A' == 0 if using alphabetic numbering).

Location format   The Message Format for reporting locations within a map window (e.g. for move reporting):    ' gridLocation is the name as drawn on the sample grid.   This is useful for prepending a board name, for example.

Draw Numbering:  If checked, the numbering of the grid will be drawn on top of the board image.

Font size:   Size of the font to use when drawing the numbering.

Color:   Color to use when drawing the numbering.

Rotate Text:   Orientation of the numbering text.

Text X offset:   Distance in pixels to the right (relative to the text's orientation) of its default position that the text will be drawn. By default, text is center-justified at the top of the cell.

Text Y offset:   Distance in pixels downward (relative to the text's orientation) of its default position that the text will be drawn. By default, text is center-justified at the top of the cell.

Odd-numbered rows numbered higher: For hex grids only.  If checked, then the first number of staggered columns on the grid will be one greater than non-staggered columns.
