    Has anyone come across this before in MIP/MID?

    Attempting to rotate labels 45% in MIP.....

    Crashed MID (2 times, gave up after that), which means, a restart to MIP, and reload of WOR

    Due to my autosave and WOR name captured at time of opening MIP: mapper window 'not working' Lost work, lost production, due to these crashes

    Datamine Support have not been able to offer any solution/help

    Has anyone come across this MIP error before: (textsizes.mb:392) Overflow?

    Any suggestion on how I can rotate  labels e.g. 45 deg in MIP, and not attempt the Discover tool, which clearly doesn't work properly

    Cheers, Mike

    Hi Peter,

    Will check this out, and see if I can work through your suggestions

    The issue with Discover tool, its its size limited, and this is why I could use in MapInfo Pro.

    I believe they are going to expand the size on the number of labels (when that is I dont know)

    will work out how to use your suggestions, going forward

    The MarketPlace, has a lot of handy tool, some of which are in the Datamine | Discover, and some which are not available - polygon and node duplicate removed - super handy. As well, the Recovery Windows, Restore Windows and Modify window - which I will look at. If this does what I think it does, will really help in our work flow.
