is there any way to create a new layer in gm? I need to label a few abstracts but want to be able to his all of them if need be. I was going to label them using the digitizer tool and create a new point/text feature. Also once you create a new point/text feature can you move it (without deleting it and making another one)?

    If you are using GM10 you can easily create new layers when creating or editing features. The feature edit dialogs displayed in the Digitzer Tool have a layer option that includes the ability to create a new layer in the Control Center and assign new and existing features to a desired layer.

    To move a feature, simply select it with the Digitizer Tool, then right-click and select the option to move the feature.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
