So I have been attempting to understand how to create a scenario using this editor.  The manual for this seems vague on how to create a new project then load the map.  Where does one begin as this is becoming frustrating.

Hi, I'm creating a scenario with that editor. You have to start by drawing the map (simply, with paper and pencil). After, you can scan it and insert it into your new file (The name of the file must be the same as the card (like 'Austerlitz1805). In the Graphics/Mapbackgrounds (PNG).

can we just upload a PNG image of a map without handdrawing one.  How can one make a map of country by handdrawing it, that seems crazy, unless you place a piece of paper over a map and trace it.  After this, I was not able to click on anyting as has always been the case. Had to control alt delete just to close it.  Thanks

I found a map of Lithuania on paper, scanned it and saved it as a PNG file.  Then pasted it into the graphics/mapbackgrounds folder, then opened the editor and clicked on new project.  Named the new project " Lithuania" same as the image and nothing.  Did not recieve a message asking for anything.
