As you might know I am a bit of a numpty when it comes to background plans in Templot
I have been sent a plan in a box file which has been scaled up.
This is fine for me to work on, but it has a massive empty white boarder round it, also not all the plan is required, I just need to know how to crop the plan

Please can someone let me know where to find the instructions please. Thanks

Hi John,

I assume you mean a map in a background picture shape? The box file which you attached is empty. Box files contain track templates, not background shapes.

I have made you a bit of video showing how to crop a picture shape, or combine several picture shapes at the same time. Here's the video:

If you prefer a written explanation with actual example maps, it's here:

Hint: when cropping and combining, it is useful to put the picture borders on, which makes it easier to see what you are doing:



cheers,

Martin.
