" This is a first version (v0.1) of the Map Sketcher. It is capable of converting .bmp images to openra maps. ..."
Introducing : MapTools (Credits: FRenzy)
(tools like mirror, append, scale, ...)
For both these tools :
- For Windows : Build the project with "make.cmd", and type "all"
(Otherwise, see : https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/Compiling )
- Run "launch-game.cmd" , choose your mod
- The tools will be then found in the traditional "Map Editor" in-game.
Utility : Mainly to resize a map (not scale, only change the boundaries), cf -resize command.

I've made a few revisions of a large map and after adjusting it, found I just needed tiny bit more for what I was aiming for.
I SHOULD have just made the map bigger and then added to it with the utility in the first place. However, now I am stuck with some work done and not wanting to go back and re-do it.
So is it possible to copy paste between maps?
