    Is there any way to change the default that always shows the legend in a map window (which can be disabled by clicking "Show Legend for This Label")?  Also how can I disable the "No Active Legend" that appears in the Map Window (and any saved windows)?

    Hi Rex

    Is it this legend here you want to get rid of?

    When you disable all your thematic layers, the legend window looks like this:

    You'll need to get the classic Thematic Legend Manager tool that we had back in 32-bit. I have attached it to this post.

    When you run it in a 64-bit MapInfo Pro, you can access its features from the Tool Extension window. Make sure the map window with the embedded legend is your active window before using the tool.

    To remove an embedded legend simply click the Embed Thematic Legend menu item from the dropdown on the tool in the Tools window.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    PS: With the upcoming MapInfo Pro v2021, you can right-click on the embedded legend and remove it.

    Hi Peter,
    I've downloaded this tool and find the same as Rex above - if I click on Embed Thematic Legend in the tool, or untick it in the Thematic Legend window in the tool, as soon as I move the map in the map window it comes back.  Is there anything else I can try in 2019.3 Release Build 41?
    Thanks,
    Jane

    Yes - it works temporarily - if I Tab the window it reappears.  Will work for now.
