I have a course with a map turnover, I only want to print the control descriptions for each part on the relevant side. This is easy to do as the "map exchange" feature automatically does this. However, I want the descriptions to be in different places on the map. This I cannot do. Any ideas?

It's been a while since ive done this and I've never used any map exchange feature built into Condes but can't you just create two control descriptions where you want them and use the dialog box to only print the rows you want in each and only print the one you want for each part of the course?

That works for split descriptions on one page, I've done that before. With a map exchange the descriptions are automatically split and the exchange control. The problem is that the location of the descriptions obscures the 2nd part of the course. If you move the description it moves it on both parts. I've tried adding in a 2nd descriptions in a different location and then deleting the one I don't need. But it doesn't work, I just get a grey box where the 2nd set should be.

Is it possible to print the front of the map, then move the box, then print the back of the map?

Mark, here's how I would do it - create two different canvases with different layouts. On one the control description is in location a and the other description b. Then you can print the first half of the course using canvas 1 and the second course using canvas 2.

If you print only one part of the course Condes will automatically only print the control desription of that part of the map. If you choose only on part of the course in the layout editor you should already see it like that.
y the why I always wonder why Condes questions arenĀ“t posted in the Condes support forum.
There you got quick support by the developer.

Thanks for the advice, went with printing the first page to PDF, moving the descriptions, printing the 2nd page to PDF, then combining them for back-to-back printing.

I have no knowledge of CONDES, but in Purple Pen you would create OCAD files of the courses, and then move the description box in OCAD, then print from OCAD, or if using a commercial printer export either a pdf or eps file from OCAD.

And Purple Pen is free!
