How to add an overlay:

  1. Select in the editor 'Current Situation' from the ribbon
  2. Select 'Overlays' on the ribbon bar
  3. Select the desired overlay from the pop up menu
  4. ...or select the desired overlay from the drop down menu on the bottom of the left panel
  5. Select 'Add' from the bottom of the left panel
  6. Fill in parameters on the right panel, as required for some overlays
  7. The overlay icon will now appear under the mini map

How to remove an overlay:
