Hmm.... thanks John. So it's a 2-step process done outside of MapInfo? That seems like a rather backward step for something that was so useful previously. It wouldn't be as annoying if it was possible to insert a thematic legend on page 2, but that's not possible. Cheers, as always, to you (and to ...

I have a situation where I need to print a map, and a (large) thematic legend, on separate A4 sheets. In the old days of 32-bit I'd set my layout to fit the extents of the print job, giving me 2 landscape pages, where I could put the map on one page, and the legend on the other. Now in layout designer ...

Many thanks, Uffe. Much appreciated, although my PC won't let me get that either. It's not like I have any impenetrable security settings, either! John Ievers has sent me the file though, from his PC, so I'm now trying to work out how to edit the relevant line :)   ------------------------------ ...

Thanks Bill. Seems that neither Google nor Microsoft think it's safe to download. Charming, eh? ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd (VAR) Petersfield ------------------------------

Hi I'm trying to create a new line style, but the only option seems to be for pre-v9.5 versions of MIP.  However, I can't download the file, as all browsers are telling me it's malicious  This file is from here: Line Style Editor Precisely remove preview Line Style Editor The MapInfo ...

Cheers John. I saw that, after posting the question. It doesn't say we can't move it though... (a work-around required, I think, as it's REALLY ugly where it is, and obscures the data completely!) Frustrating not to be able to resize the text, as it takes up a large amount of the map. This is the ...

Many thanks, Nick. That's really useful. Would there be something we could add to the xml to force it to left-justify, instead of right-justify? That would probably be all we needed to do for this particular map window. ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd (VAR) Petersfield ...

Hi,  Is there a way to edit the size or position of the Microsoft (Bing) copyright text, in a layout? It's covering up a crucial part of the map display. Normally, I'd change the map position so the important info is visible, but in this case it's a specifically-located map strip above a cross-section ...

Hi I tried again, reading a new version of the xlsx file as the data file (not a native MapInfo table). I got this error: I tried the heatmap option instead of standard thematics, and get this So I tried importing the xlsx table as a native MapInfo table, and this time I CAN create a heatmap, ...

Thanks Peter. I tried opening as a native MapInfo table rather than an Excel-linked table, and it worked, although behaved very strangely, and opened the thematic map in a new window and made a copy of the original point file in the original window. It was then quite difficult to get the thematic ...

Hi Trying to create a grid thematic map (MapInfo basic version only, so a normal thematic, of type "grid"), and we get this error: "Error creating grid file during interpolation process" The MapInfo Tab file reads from an underlying excel file, but I don't think that should matter for standard ...

Many thanks Peter, that seems to have worked. It gave me a different error when I first did what you suggested, but then after closing MapInfo, and re-opening the database link, it worked fine. Much appreciated. ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd (VAR) Petersfield ...

Hi I'm trying to set up an ODBC connection, to a .mdb database which has the required unique identifier field and indexed fields in it as far as I can tell.  I set it up using "Machine Data Source" and "System Data Source" which is what I've done before, but it gives me this error: This happens ...

Hi I am sure this should be really easy, and I may even have done it before, but I can't work out how to do it now. I would like to show labels, but only for objects above a certain value. eg only display the population of a country where it's more than 5 million.  I know I can query the table, ...

Hi all, I have a file which I believe is an ENVI file, in .hdf format with associated hdf.met file. I can't see a way to open it in MapInfo, and as a novice with FME it's failing any sort of transformation to MapInfo format in that too. I can save it to a GEOtiff in FME but it seems to lose its projection ...

Discovered the problem - I was trying to do thematics on a sub-set of data. Turns out you can't use "join" thematics when it's only a subset of the original file, despite it being an SQL rather than a spatial subset. D'Oh! ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd ...

Hi,  I'm using v2019.3, and I am sure there used to be an option to create a thematic map using the "join" feature. I have 2 tables which share the same field, although the fields do not have the same name they have the same info.  All I see on the list of options under "field" are the normal ...

Hi, the useful MapInfo YouTube channel has disappeared, and none of the tutorial links on the old PB site are working, so does anyone have links to MapInfo tutorial videos please? Specifically 64-bit "starter" guides for new users. Thanks in advance Caroline ------------------------------ Caroline ...
