Hexagonal Map Drawing Support (?)

Score + 20
Right so I'm currently attempting to make a large scale map using Horizontal Hexagonal grid. So when it comes to Tokens, it does work & it completely fine. However the actual grid for stuff like drawing is completely off, & I'm trying to create a sort of W40k Planetary Empires sorta map that will probably require me to outline the actual Hexs in different colours because I have the artisitic talent of a chimp throwing it's own feces. Now I do know that the shapes say to draw as rectangles & circles so I'm not suggesting that those change, but the polygon/line tool doesn't actually snap to the Hex (H) grid at all so if that could actually be added as a difference that would be really useful to me. Placing it here because I think it's a non-feature but if this is a bug, please move me out.

I'm going to propose that this topic be merged with  this other one . The other one has more discussion, but this one has (slightly) more votes.
I mean, I have no issues with that.

Once you have the grid ready, even hex grids, just hold shift while you click around the corners of the grid and itll automatically snap. Do this with the line tool

El Gato of de Churros said: Once you have the grid ready, even hex grids, just hold shift while you click around the corners of the grid and itll automatically snap. Do this with the line tool It will indeed automatically snap--to a square grid. This is an example of what it looks like when you try to snap your drawing to the grid on a hex map. It's very distinctly NOT hexagonal. Fog of war has the same problem. Tokens will snap to the proper hexes, as will the measuring tool.

Polygon/line tool works fine for me, as long as I don't click SHIFT.  Click in point A, then click point B, then click point C, etc. My first clicks were a little imprecise, but by and large it does a decent job as long as I click on the points properly...snapping to grid would be nice, but this wasn't difficult and allowed me to outline my Hex the way I wanted.
