  • 1.  Default setting statusbar?

    Hi MapInfo community,

    I was wondering if it's possible to set a default setting for the "Zoom" setting in the Statusbar. What I mean is I would like to have the "Cursor Location" setting enabled by default everytime I open MapInfo.

    Is it possible to do that?

    The status bar settings are window dependent - meaning its different for each of the document windows.  Right now, this setting as a Map preference is not available, only just as a Map Option when map is in focus.  When the Map Option is changed, the command: 'Set Map Display Position' is issued.  This 'preference' can be handled with a custom MBX addin, if you or anyone else wants to create one, that issues this command when it detects that a mapper is in focus (e.g.: WinChangedHandler).
    The setting should be persisted in a workspace once its set in Map Options though.

    I'm going to add a feature request to add this as a Map Window Preference.

    Thank you
