Thanks Peter, that's helpful.  I've amended those settings - the windows are mainly docked, it's specifically the Info window I need floating - so will see how it goes tomorrow. ------------------------------ Jane Mason Biological Records Officer (GIS), Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service, UK ...

Hello All, In Pro v2021 is there a way to make the Info tool window open by default as Floating?  At the moment it's opening docked when I click on a map object - this means that it moves and re-sizes the map window and if I have a lot of data pulling over the network, it's frustratingly slow to re-draw.  ...

Thanks for your help, James.  Unfortunately I already tried removing the existing file and the same message occurs so the source code is necessary.

I had a MapBasic tool called 'GridRefMapper 12.mbx' which worked in 32-bit MapInfo Pro, but not in 64-bit.  When I try, the error given is: (gridrefmapper 12.mb:102) Cannot open file error_log.txt.  It worked fine in Pro v15.  It generated points and grid squares from a table of British National Grid ...

Thanks Peter, but it turned out to be the settings under Options > MapInfo Pro Raster > Preferences > Raster Formats - I needed to disable MapInfo raster handlers - on the Native and GDAL tabs (see attached images).  I remember this was recommended for translucent raster display problems a while ago, ...

Hello everyone, We have a workspace which opens several layers - it's old but it works for us.  It opens fine in v15.0 and v2019.3, but when I try in v2021.1 MapInfo crashes after 6 seconds, without any message or warning.  The layers are all vector, with raster (including seamless tables) and OS ...

Hi, thank you William - your reply prompted me to go and hunt a bit in MapInfo as your scalebar tool was obviously different from the one I was using.  I had been activating the map window in the Layout, then going Add to Map > Scalebar, which brings up a Create Adornment box where the text can't be ...

I'm using v2021.1 and have two issues with the Layout Scalebar:   Are there any plans to make the text in the Layout Scalebar editable, so, for example, "kilometers" can be changed to British English spelling and with capital letter (Kilometres)?   Also - I have the same problem as a few others ...

Hi Peter, Thanks it seems to be with normal vector tab files, most held locally no web service layers. There are labels set to switch on at certain levels too, but I haven't found if this is the issue. If it's really troublesome I'll contact our IT as it sounds like a local issue. I think we are ...

Hello all, I've not long had v2019.3 Build 41 installed on a new laptop and noticed that it's very prone to crashing when zooming in and out - I think it's when layers are set to zoom ranges and so should switch on or off at different zoom levels.  I don't have this problem with v15.0 on the same ...

Thanks Peter, yes, that's the thing, getting the legend even though I can load a classified raster - I had thought I'd best do something similar so thanks for the link to the legend image. ------------------------------ Jane Mason Biological Records Officer (GIS), Suffolk Biodiversity Information ...

Thanks Anshul - I didn't make it clear that I only have MapInfo Pro, not MapInfo Pro Advanced, so I don't have access to the functions of the Calculator tool.  Good to know that I'm not overlooking something though. Thanks for your help, Jane ------------------------------ Jane Mason Biological ...

I have a classified raster which I have displayed in v2019.3 using Pseudo Color on the required band and the Advanced Color tool to create colours for each of the 21 classes according to the colour recipe I received with the data. Although in the Color window I can see these classes and their colours ...

Hi John, Thanks!  No, they didn't supply a tfw so that's probably the problem.  I'll ask for the tab too.   Happy New Year! Jane ------------------------------ Jane Mason Biological Records Officer (GIS), Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service, UK ------------------------------
