When you create a Layout, AC Master matches the Map's dimensions and units to the Place's dimensions and units (converting units if necessary).
Here are a few reasons why a Map might appear with the wrong size when used in a Layout.
1. Check the Map Dimensions
Double check the width and height dimensions by editing your Map:
An incorrect height or width will cause the Map to scale incorrectly.
Note: If you change a dimension or the units and then tap Save all Layouts using that Map will be automatically updated.
2. Check the Place Dimensions
It's less likely, but double check the width and height dimensions by editing your Place:
Note: If you change a dimension or the units and then tap Save all Layouts using that Place will be automatically updated.
3. Crop the Course Map
This is a common cause for a Map displaying too small. AC Master scales the whole image. Any white space outside of the course border or any text in the image outside the course border will cause the Map to display too small.
If this is the course image (course size of 45' x 60') and it is imported into a Map:
If that Map is put into a Place that is also 45' wide and 60` high the Layout would look like this:
You can see the grid in the Map doesn't line up with the grid in the Place; the map image is scaled according to the height of the entire image.
To fix it crop the image to only contain the very edges of the actual course:
Add a new Map and import the cropped image. Once you've made a Layout using this new Map and the existing Place it will look correct:
4. Switching the Map Width and Height
This can be harder to figure out. When you enter the width and height of a course map in the Map editor you should enter the width and height according to the way the image is rotated. Here are two examples:
This image should have its width entered as 45 and its height entered as 60:
Here is the same image rotated 90 degrees. Its width should be entered as 60 and its height entered as 45:
Note: Enter the height and width dimensions according to the rotation of the image.
