nav_begin_area Defines a corner of a new Area. To complete the Area, drag the opposite corner to the desired location and issue a 'nav_end_area' command.
nav_clear_walkable_marks Erase any previously placed walkable positions.
nav_connect To connect two Areas, mark the first Area, highlight the second Area, then invoke the connect command. Note that this creates a ONE-WAY connection from the first to the second Area. To make a two-way connection, also connect the second area to the first.
nav_corner_lower Lower the selected corner of the currently marked Area.
nav_corner_raise Raise the selected corner of the currently marked Area.
nav_corner_select Select a corner of the currently marked Area. Use multiple times to access all four corners.
nav_crouch Toggles the 'must crouch in this area' flag used by the AI system.

nav_mark_walkable Mark the current location as a walkable position. These positions are used as seed locations when sampling the map to generate a Navigation Mesh.
nav_merge To merge two Areas into one, mark the first Area, highlight the second by pointing your cursor at it, and invoke the merge command.
nav_no_jump Toggles the 'don't jump in this area' flag used by the AI system.
nav_place_floodfill Sets the Place of the Area under the cursor to the curent Place, and 'flood-fills' the Place to all adjacent Areas. Flood-filling stops when it hits an Area with the same Place, or a different Place than that of the initial Area.

nav_split To split an Area into two, align the split line using your cursor and invoke the split command.
nav_strip Strips all Hiding Spots, Approach Points, and Encounter Spots from the current Area.
nav_toggle_place_mode Toggle the editor into and out of Place mode. Place mode allows labelling of Area with Place names.
nav_toggle_place_painting Toggles Place Painting mode. When Place Painting, pointing at an Area will 'paint' it with the current Place.
