   * Keep scraps small and simple.  Break them at changes of elevation (say more than 5% of expected cave depth).  This allows better representation of colour by elevation maps as each scrap can only have one colour.   * Keep scraps small and simple.  Break them at changes of elevation (say more than 5% of expected cave depth).  This allows better representation of colour by elevation maps as each scrap can only have one colour.
   * Assuming you have two monitors keep the previous output open on one while editing in the Xtherion drawing editor on the other.   * Assuming you have two monitors keep the previous output open on one while editing in the Xtherion drawing editor on the other.
 +  * Use points lines and areas that have consistent looking symbol options available.  The Brazilian Speleological Society [SBE] symbols have a unique look, and so I have identified entities below that only have SBE symbols available.  You may wish to either favour or avoid these.

 ''__point map-connection__'' ## place one of these on a scrap that you may decide to offset.  It causes Therion to generate a dashed line between the main map and the offset map. My convention is that I only place a point map-connection in locations where a person can travel from a passage that is not offset, to the passage that is offset.  This maximises the maps usefulness for navigation purposes. ''__point map-connection__'' ## place one of these on a scrap that you may decide to offset.  It causes Therion to generate a dashed line between the main map and the offset map.
