Internals from The overlapping contours in 'Build' and 'Trace'
When Using The 'Build' And 'Trace' Tools, Create any overlapping contours as internals when building pieces.
Add Internal Darts In 'Cut', 'Build' And 'Trace' Piece
Adds darts with their top inside the building piece and border points outside of it.
Note: that if, after the original piece creations, a modification is made to the dart information: it is required to re-create the pieces from the map zone to keep the proper geometry.
Use map piece zones
If selected, displays the Piece Zone when creating map zones.
Piece Zones are used to manage all of your map zones.

Set Connection Internals with the Zone
If selected, copies the internals for a newly created piece.
Maintain the base line direction after 'Correct piece by map zone'

This option is used when rotating the pieces and updating the map.
In some cases the baseline angle might change.
Using long complex contours in Build Piece
If selected, creates temporary contours from two or more internal contours according to the maximum length as defined in the Build Piece and Build Piece Zones tools.
