Hi, have to admit upon reading this I was surprised to find that the filter didn't just automictically update the map, like John and Darren were.  I had just assumed it would have. Interestingly if you save a workspace and the data changes the filter does update when you re-open it. Could a 'refresh ...

Sam, Thanks for that.  Interesting stuff. I'll look at the MMR option as the same data may be required for Spectrum too so it may make that easier to manage rather than seamless tables. Regards Nick ------------------------------ Nick Hall Mapchester LTD Manchester ---------------------------- ...

Hi,  I have a large seamless table of just over 10,000 tiles.  All the ghx and pprc files have been created for the tiffs. When I open it in v15 I can zoom to the entire layer and, eventually, it will draw the entire map. When I try and do the same in v21, no matter how long I wait, MapInfo crashes.   ...

Hi, sorry if this has come up before.  Doing some training today and a user closed the Time Slider while doing a Time Series by clicking on the X on it's right hand end.  I couldn't find how to get it back.  I've now done the same on my laptop and still can't find the option.  Using v21 and v21.1. ...

Caroline, Firstly, let me say I'm not 100% sure you are allowed to alter the size.  I'm sure someone at Precisely will know ;) If you are though then there is an XML file called BingAerial.XML located in C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professionalv21.1\TileServer This contains the line: Microsoft Bing ...

Hi, I would do sort of what you've down above.  However, I would add a column to the layer and put a value in all rows.  E.g. Column called join and update it with the word join.  Copy the layer and then as you almost suggest: Select mytable.ID, mytable2.ID, Distance(centroidX(mytable.obj), centroidy(mytable.obj), ...

Alan,  Do you mean editing the XML file to be picked up by the smart text drop down in v21?   If so, then adding CHR$(13)  does seem to work.  E.g. line from my SmartTextAliases.xml file "Your" +CHR$(13)+ "name" When used in Pro this does add Your and Name on separate lines. HTH Nick ----- ...

Giselle I have a client who uses dropbox as a way of sharing data for 4 users who all work from home permanently.  ​Not 100% sure but dropbox appears to hold the data at a local level and then manage/syncs the data updates as users make changes/add files/etc.   So we created a data hub on one dropbox ...

Julian, To be perfectly honest with you I find it overly complicated whenever I've tried to use it.  The benefits of address level detail and outside of UK addresses, for me, aren't worth it.  I know it's not the question you asked but you can get free postcode unit data points from Ordnance Survey, ...

Hi, Is there any licensing issues with regards to business use of the drivetimes created by the app within Pro?  If published should they have any copyright statements added?  Can find lots of technical info but none on specific licensing details Thanks Nick ------------------------------ ...

Darren, That refreshes the data in the layer but does that also refresh the available layers in the Open WFS dialogue box: Client is using Spectrum to serve up corporate layers via WFS to remote Pro users who don't share a mapped drive.  Every time we add another spectrum table to the list we ...

Peter, If you add a query filter to the base table it works OK.  Turning off both theme variables that apply to the same point still leaves the point on the map though :( The nice thing about the option is the ability to turn things on/off with out having to understand how to do an SQL. Thanks ...

Hi, The only was I can find a way to refresh the layers offered within a WFS connection is to close MapInfo and open it again.  Is there a quicker way? Thanks Nick ------------------------------ Nick Hall Mapchester LTD Manchester ------------------------------

HI, I have a point map with 2 variables thematically styled.  One by colour and one by shape.  If I use the filter options for the shape theme in the 'layer control' in the explorer window to turn off some of the points it doesn't remove them from the map it just resorts to a different default shape ...

Mohamed, John is correct if you are in support for the application then it's not a bad idea to take it up with them as obviously the MapInfo install seems to be fine. However, if you're not getting much joy there then I would investigate why the second user doesn't work and the first does. Do they ...
