    Any clues on how to scale an imported background in FreeShip ... I did a search here and didn't come up with anything ... likewise, searching Google returns 1000's of sites with free shipping but no FreeShip info ... grrr

    Many thanks, Trevor Paetkau

    First, set "origin."

    Right click on the background, select "origin" from the menu, and use the mouse to drag the image into position.

    Now, to set scale, right click on background and select "set scale" from the menu. Click on any part of the background image and enter the proper coordinates for that location. For instance, if you happen to know that the boat is 20' long, click on the stem and enter "20" in the box for the "X" coordinate. The whole image will be scaled accordingly.
