Using Purple Pen
The Technical Side
Here are our main guides to creating courses using Purple Pen.
Wherever possible, events should be created using PPen. This makes everything a lot easier for everyone in the process.
Things to Remember to Include
Make sure the name of the course (Hare, Squirrel, etc) features prominently. Don't just rely on the name in the CDs. This is to avoid a child accidentally being given the wrong map and getting very confused/disheartened.
Big thing to note: PPen does not incorporate the map in its files. You must send the map file as well as the PPen file if you want the recipient to be able to see it.
