  • Map layout editor

    Hi Jan,

    It sounds like you haven't discovered the Map Layout Editor button yet (select icon to left of "spanner" on File tool bar or bottom selection below "Tools" dropdown menu). This editor allows you to set up A1, A2, A3 etc. size drawing/figure sheets with windows automatically to scale (use insert Map View Element), also to paste in Word details (use insert Text Element), coordinate grid frames, image files, scale bars, north arrows etc.  If you need an overview map for your figure you can create it in the normal workspace view and then insert it as an image on your figure. 

    Once you get your head around it you can set up standard template files for your business or project e.g. Portrait A4, Landscape A3 etc. with title box, logo etc. I've attached an example of what I mean.

    Further details are available under GM Help (search up "Map Layout Editor").

    Cheers,
