I was performing a test with creatures with SM:
1 Orc with Gigantism SM + 1 (2 Hexes)
1 Nighstalker SM + 2 (4 Hexes)
So far so good.
I had created Hexes of different spokes and inserted the respective images, but when I mark the target, the image on the map represents as if both were 2 hexes apart from each other, but the arrow indicates that the distance is greater, because at least that I understood the measure is made through the central Hexagono and not the edge of the hexagon, has this problem always existed? how to deal with it?

IIRC measurements on a hex grid are center hex to center hex.

Yeah, this is how I understand grid measurements should be.

But, the SM? I use those value in modifier to hit the target? And another question, the field reach what is the purpose?

That's for melee combat, which goes to any occupied hex of a multi hex creature. Range combat, at least to my knowledge, does not work that way for figuring modifiers. Perhaps that's a question for the SJG GURPS forum.
