    I use a game system that measures things in hexes, which is convenient.

    Now I was wondering if I could use CC2 to create maps with a specific number of hexes in them. In other words, would it be possible to make an outline of something, then have CC2 scale the hexes to a general number fit in the outline? I kinda doubt it but wanted to ask anyway.

    It would depend on the scale of the hexes.

    If you made the spacing 100 instead of the default 10, there are fewer hexes.

    You can select a start location onthe map, then the opposite corner.

    Well, I was thinking of an irregular outline, like a snip map, I was hoping, but not expecting, for there to be a way to make an outline then define how many hexes would be in it and have the program adjust the hexes by itself.

    I know it was a lot to ask for.....

    Square map only.

    Hmm... You could locate or create hexes of the scale you need. Then place therm on the irregular map.

    You could create a PNG with your hexes, and import it as a fill at the scale you want.
    Then create a poly using that fill style - it can be any shape you want.
    If the PNG has a transparent background, you'll be able to put this in front of your map.
