    Hi, thanks for enquiring. Sadly there is no iOS port in development right now. I'd love to make one in the future but as of right now I don't have any of the necessary equipment. I'll post back here if the situation changes.

    I've just released the first Linux Beta of Grid Cartographer.

    Right now you can grab a copy from my forum here:
    David Walters Development ? View topic - Linux Beta

    I'll put it on a more general release once it's been tested a bit more.
    Enjoy!

    Hi all, it's been a while since I posted here. Since then I've released v2 of Grid Cartographer. It has tons of new features, a redesigned user interface and is now available for Mac OSX.

    I've just released v2.0.3 and I hope you can give it a try: Grid Cartographer 2 | David Walters Development

    Congrats, Dave! You are now $12 richer! This is a fantastic utility, I can't wait to see the looks on my players' faces when they see clean, clear dungeon maps next session. A couple issues/glitches/bugs I noticed, however:
    • The wood texture is different on the top and bottom, making a strange pattern in the texture when tiled.
    • The gray arrows/X's on doors do not change with the rest of the icon, but the arrows in the Travel section do. (Not sure if this is intentional, just thought I'd mention it),
    • When markers are hidden, walls and doors in the middle of squares disappear, too (Again, might be intentional).
    • The Terrain textures don't seem to math their names. In order, they look like: "Inside" looks like it should be called "Dirt," and "Rock" looks like it should be called Cobble(s)/Stone Brick(s)/Flagstone(s). Also, Slime would work better as an overlay, rather than a base texture.
    • Editing labels needs work. It's too difficult to go back and edit pre-existing text blocks, and the blocks themselves should have freeform placement and sizes, as well as multiple rows (maybe).


    Besides the five points outlined above, this program is fantastic! Great work, Dave, and thank you.

    Can you explain this a bit more, I'm not sure what you mean by 'change'?

    I agree that the editing isn't quite perfect yet. I'm working on multi-line notes (not labels) for the next update and plan to revisit the system again in further updates. I'm not sure I'll add free-form placement soon but agree the selection could be better, and have plans for things like colouring and possibly different sizes too.

    I agree, these tiles could do with a refresh in some way. Not to necessarily remove them but relegate them to a 'legacy' category.

    Yeah this is intentional. The map data is trying to be compact and I've combined the block walls with marker icons (since it seemed unlikely that you'd want both in one tile) but it does lead to this effect when you hide the marker layer.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry, missing a word. They don't change color.

    This shouldn't be a priority, but Ctrl+Shift+Arrow should select individual words.

    Good idea.

    Okay, that makes sense.

    EDIT:
    Quick question: What are the differences between the "Annotation," "Interactive," "Effects," and "Features" options?
