Forgive me father I have sinned. Whilst using the map editor I put the wrong place name against a city. Can somebody tell me how to amend or delete an incorrect place name.

I wish I knew the answer to that myself. Also, WTF do you have to do to put a national border on the map?

Get to "border draw mode" by clicking the mode button in the map editor. Then left click next to the hex side that should show the border.

Placename removal: click on the location while in place name draw mode. Backspace over the name.

Note: I am not on the .20/.21 upgrade.

Cheers

Here is a complex screenshot. Go to Edit > Map > Right Click on Hex > Draw Place Name. Also, the Orange Circled Button will give you a choice of handy modes, including Placename Drawing. And don't forget to keep your eye on the majic bar at the bottom of the screen for helpful hints!
