    Section of BF for TGs says that area texture symbols in a key should start in cell 1 and end in cell 4. It also says the areas should be 1 in. wide. One inch is wider than cell 1 to cell 4, even going to the outsides of the cells. Can you explain?

    Hi Julie!

    You are correct! Those dimensions do collide. We will contact the BANA committee responsible for revising this document and ask them to address this issue.

    In the meantime, we can suggest the following, from GSTG

    • Texture symbols used to represent areas and lines start cell 1; the explanation starts in cell 6 with runovers in cell 8. Point symbols are to be centered within the first four cells the line. The explanation should begin in cell 6 and runovers in cell 8.

    The 1" x .5" inch rectangle fits perfectly if you start the texture in cell 1 and the explanation in cell 6.
