Importing and Aligning Grid Image

The import grid command will insert a grid image behind the red scoring grid. It must then be aligned as described below.

Initial View of Red Scoring Grid

The initial image on the scoring template should look like the image below. Here the red scoring grid is shown, with the cursor indicating the insertion point for a scanned grid image. To insert a hand scored grid into the template, simply choose Import Grid from the BACGrid pull down menu, or click on the Import Grid Button from the BACGrid toolbar.

Imported Image to Scoring Desktop

When the image is initially inserted into the background it will not be aligned and will look similar to the image below.

Align Top Left Corner of Hand Scored Image

It is easiest to first align the upper left hand corner of the image as shown below. In order to do this, first move the image to the nearest possible correct position by moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button and the Alt key on the keyboard; an alternative to this is to simply use the Arrow keys on the keyboard to move the image to roughly the correct location. The image can then be moved one pixel at a time by holding down the Ctrl key while using your keyboards four arrow keys. The finished position should look like the image below.

Final Alignment of Image

Once the upper left hand corner of the image is aligned as shown above, modify the size of the image by dragging the sides of the image into their proper location. This is done by holding down the Alt key while moving the mouse with the left mouse button held down. The final aligned image behind the Red Scoring Grid should look like the image below.

Type Numbers Representing Hit Pattern

The number representing the hit pattern can then be entered into the appropriate cell by moving the cursor over the correct cell and typing in the number. The numbers will appear in blue over top of the hand scored number. When this process is complete, you can move on to the auto-score process.
