Is it possible to move it? I mean, the numbers are placed right in the middle, but as I have some weird shapes, sometimes they are on the border.

Like here:



The red 5, I want to move it slightly down. Any ideas?

You can't remove bonus value number, you can only change shape or position of the bonus link (as you said, that number is always at the center, so changing shape/position of the bonus link would change position of bonus number)

I think you can add some non-visible portions to the path to shift its Center downwards. Look at the Big Europe Map.

@CROivan: I already knew that... But that doesn't help me.

@Pooh: Yes, that's one of the map where I noticed it is possible to change, for example in Norway.
What you mean by "non-visible"? Hidden behind other bonuses? Or so small it is invisible?

Um, you don't have to change the shape, just change the center point. The center point can be anywhere in the shape. Click on the "set center point tool", then where you want that point to be (for example bottom left looks like it has the most room).

Look at my map, I have lots of points that are moved:

I guess you cannot see center point on that link, but if you notice many factories would overlap if the army number was simply centered.

EDIT - I realize you may be referring to the Bonus number, not territory army number. If so, just move your Bonus Link shape somewhere else.

@ChrisCMU: Yes, I'm referring to the Bonus number. Hence the thread title "Numbers in BonusLinks".
If so, just move your Bonus Link shape somewhere else.

What do you mean?

If you draw a square and then put that shape over it, will the number of the bonus appear over the shape? If yes, that is the solution :D

Also in that Europe map I see that he wasn`t able to change it. Look at croatia, he had to make another circle. Also the numbers in countries like Belgium aren`t set in the middle.

Min is correct. Look at my map again (or even medium earth). You have a square (can be any shape, like my factories) for the bonus link. Just move it wherever you want. Sometimes there are not good places to move it (doesn't look like it from your image). But usually you can just put it next to bonus if you need to.

Just add a tiny bit of bonuslink to move the center to where you want the number to show up. It sort of messes up the hitbox, but at least it works. For more complicated shapes you can always doubl-click the shape in inkscape to see the center of it. Then keep moving a tiny path until the center is where you want it to be.

Ok, I think I have it. I find out how to remove BonusLink's yellow border, this make both solutions applicable. Thanks.
