Thanks, T'Star. I'll pass the message on. I suspect the method might
well be the same for FM8. I know when I was going through it as a
complete newbie for the beta testing, I found many similarities and I
seem to recall doing much the same when I was choosing colours for text.

Live long & prosper.

Cheers,

Mike

If he wants to change landmass color, the background can be changed by
going to the four way arrow on the tool bar. (For FM 7) and click
there you can choose your background color there. For land masses
just select the land mass he wants to deal with and Make sure the fill
is set to 'solid' then use the color bar at the bottom to pick a
collor or double click on it to create a custom color.
