    Hi Adrijana

    Thanks for reaching out.
    We are working our way through the videos as we have to rebrand them from Pitney Bowes to the new Precisely brand.

    You can find the list of videos here: Precisely - MapInfo Playlist

    The list will slowly grow. I'll put in a word around the North arrow video.

    Thank you Peter. Maybe you can help me :)

    So I have managed to insert North Arrow from tools into Active Map Window, but because I am making multipage layout map, I would like that my North Arrow is out of active window. Actually I want it on layout page, like when we add a legend. I know it is somehow possible using text and choosing Mapinfo Symbols, I did it before but can't do it now in this new version. Any help?
    One more thing, when we add North Arrow to Activ Map Layout Windows, can we somehow move it? Because, once I add it and I don't like it, I can do anything about it. I can't even remove it. And undo function and ctrl+z are not working in this case. Thanks, once again.

    Hi

    From the Layout tab select the Symbol command from the Insert dropdown in the Insert group.
    Click in the layout window where you want the North Arrow to insert a new symbol/point.

    Then double-click the inserted symbol and use the Symbols dialog to switch to the MapInfo Arrows symbol set, select the wanted arrow style, and set the appropriate size.

    The result could look like this. You can drag the north arrow to any location you want after creating and resizing it.

    That is what I was missing! Style button. Thank you.
    And if we insert North Arrow from tools to Active Map Window in Layout, can we manipulate with the arrow (resizing, moving,etc.) and how? Or we can't?
