Any recommendations which software to use when designing hex maps?

Have seen several shareware and commerical programs out there, just wondering what board members are using to design their maps?

It is also realy easy to use Powerpoint (not a program for hex maps but...)

First create a hex area (there are a predefined hex symbol that can be used (Use snap to object).

The hexarea can be used in two ways.

1. Have it as a layer over a created map (picture from another program or a real map.

2. Update each Hex symbol with a picture inside the picture.

Both ways work. With the first way will a map take me about 10 minutes to create. With the second way the work will take about an hour.

With a Acrobat program (desitiller or the full version) this can then be translated to PDF.
