Scouting
Scouting is pretty annoying first of all if there are multiple enemies it can take a while to figure out where what is and then the results disappear the moment you do something else like check the map, stats etc. . Also figuring out what area was scouted isn't very easy(or does it just always scout all around but just fails randomly?) It should show the results in the map ie. by outlining the scouted area and showing crosses or something for monsters.

Re: Scouting
As far as I can tell - no, you don't scout around automatically.  Scouting seems to check the 8 squares immediately around your party, and if there are monsters in that square, you have a chance to find them (or not.)  As for figuring out where which enemies are where, you should be able to hover over a square and get its (X,Y) position.  It should also tell you how many turns it will cost your party to move there, based on your movement factor.

Re: Scouting
Possibly a small arrow graphic next to each monster entry, which gives the direction the monster group is in?

Re: Scouting
Yeah, I think something visual is needed.
