    Question Autorealm Questions

    Hey, I have recently began making maps and I am using Autorealm and am wondering a few things.

    1) Is there a way to post my maps online or send them via email in a way for other people to see them without printing first??

    2)What does the Hyperlink/Popup thing do?? Can I put it on one map and make it so that when you click on it it opens another map??

    In answer to question 1, yes. Under the "Save As" option, you should be able to choose between a number of file formats, two of which are .bmp and .jpg, both of which can be posted here, or e-mailed to whomever.

    In answer to question 2, I'm not 100% positive, but, if I remember correctly, the hyperlink does work between maps, however, that wouldn't work here in the forum. That feature, I believe, acts very much like a web-page, however, I'd have to go back and look at the documentation to be sure.

    Edit : One of the forum members, Vandy, compiled the documentation for Autorealm into a single, pdf formatted file located here;

    It might be of some help in answering your questions more completely.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.

    Don't use .bmp for posting to the Internet, though. It's uncompressed, so the files are huge, and some browsers cannot display it.

    If you have the option for .gif or .png, those are the formats most suitable for the kind of output Autorealm produces.
