Hello!I am going to show you how to save a whole lot of time changing territory ID's by using the find + replace tool.
It may have been mentioned before,but I found this out by myself and haven't seen it on the forums,so I figured I would share it

Fist of all,open the find + replace tab by pressing ctrl + f
http://prnt.sc/d0l7a4

You should then draw out your territories.Once you have completed part of your map(or,ideally,all of it in one go),you will need to turn all the path ID's into territory ID's.

To do this,you first need to select all the soon-to-be territories.
You should make sure you have "Properties" selected under "Search in" and "Selection" under "Scope" in the find + replace tab.(image link of this coming up soon)

You then need to type in "path" in the "Find" bar.

If the territories you have selected are just a part of your map and not the entirety of it,then you should type "Territory_ + 2-3 random numbers(do NOT forget the underscore)

http://prnt.sc/d0l242

If you have done all of your map in one go,you can skip the random numbers

Click "Find" and then "Replace All"

Provided you have done everything correctly and have followed the standard way of drawing out territories,when you load the SVG into warlight,all the territories should be there.You can use this thread if you have issues

Hope you found this helpful!

well there is a little tool for inkscape, which you can find in the map making wiki:
Inkcape extension plugin for automatically assigning selected Paths ID is available here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/89026778/WLExtension.zip

i was about to say, didnt some guy make some tool that does it all automatically... lol.
i made a tool that does it semi-automatically because you click this window once and control-C and you get a new unused ID which you then paste in. but this...

Thank you! I'm using it on the map I'm making. Most likely it will be unveiled next week if everything is on schedule.

*sigh* From all these years I've been manually naming thousands of territories in huge maps, I never knew that it could've been a lot more easier.

I've got it working for my latest map!
You have to go into the options to make it work properly though.
Click a tick box for 'properties', then untick all the properties which then show except for IDs. Replace 'path' with 'Territory_'.

you can use the find tool also to locate territories of certain ID, this is especially useful if warlight throws up a message saying "territory iD 29834 is unnamed"

You can also use it for renaming many territories that are cirlces or squares by searching accordingly

Belgian Gentleman thats a shame.^^ The tool works just perfect for me. I cant imagine how boring it would be to manually rename every Territory ID! =D
