    Hi,

    There are quite a few instances where once acq counters are down it would be good
    if they could be HIP enough so that buildings and such like could be seen through them.
    For the present time I will experiment with the edit area but might take a while to find the
    counter I want to change the properties of..

    Number 2.

    Is there any way the toolbar could be "flexible" so that one could move either groups or single
    icons to other areas.
    The ACQ and ones that go to the bottom bar are sometimes better elsewhere.

    The LOS on RB seems to be working better than b4. btw

    Thanks

    HIP ACQ counters? Why would an ACQ counter be HIP? Do you mean for boresighting? Just leave them off the board until you need them if they're HIP.

    I think he is referring to VASL options and desires? But that is just my guess...

    Right. But ACQ isn't HIP. I, and I'm sure many players, use HIP ACQ counters for Boresighting. But I can't think of any time I've HIPd a regular ACQ counter meant for acquisition. So, if it's for BS, just leave it off the board until you need it.

    By HIP does he mean 'ghosted' ' see through' then?

    I assumed he meant actually HIP. Maybe he wants them see through. That might be cool. Like how the sniper counter can be made small and partially transparent.

    HIP a blank counter with writing. Unless he wants a less visible acq counter to not obscure terrain and units.
