Can we have a way to reduce or remove the situational markings from the maps? During combat, trying to find your way around, these arrows and borders are a hindrance. This is especially true when blue overlays overlap lakes or rivers. The unit markers are ok but it would be good if we could toggle both the unit markers and the situational decorations separately. The frount line borders could be made thinner as well. These decorations are informative in museum displays but get in the way of navigation.

 

Or could we get PDF files that we can print off so we can have real paper maps, with more contrast for the important elements. See attached sample.

Some examples of arrows obscuring map details.

Also, there is a long rectangle of forest missing. Is this an error or an example of clear cutting? Sectors 1811 - 1812

Revisiting this issue. Any way we can remove those map arrows and such? Battle of Moscow, chapter 5 is particularly bad.
