  2. At the bottom select 'Install Module'

Step 3 - Optional - You can enter the name of the level, if no name is entered this will default to the name used on export.
Step 4 - While base fidelity should be fine, increasing the fidelity slider will create more wall points.  If you have shaped walls and the wall points are not accurate enough, please re-import your map with a higher fidelity setting.
      Caution: Please use cation when selecting a higher fidelity as too many map points can cause lag within Foundry VTT.
Step 5 - Choose and select the file for the map you will be importing.  Multiple maps can be imported at once.
Step 6 - Set Offset to 0 (default to 0.1)
      Note - Leaving this at 0.1 instead of changing this to 0 will cause adjoining room wall points to be inaccurate.
Step 7 - Import your map
