    How do I access the redistribute alignment function in V17? Why doesn't the Legend Designer insert into a single frame? Tried a new workspace, though still unable to insert all contents into a single frame, hence redistribute function.

    Hi Jason,

    Just wanted to make sure you know that v17 has the capability of adding a legend in an empty frame in layout. You don't have to necessarily bring it in with the map window.

    You can then select each legend frame and move it around in the layout. You can try this.

    Regards,

    Shweta

    Thanks Shweta. I understand. So the split was an intentional design change. Unfortunately this is why I need the redistribution tool returned. We've only been left with the alignment basics. I agree the option to split is a good one, though the default should be that the two are created in the same frame.

    Jason,

    Align is coming back. At the moment I'm not sure whether it will be brought back in the upcoming v17.0.2 later this year or in v19 next year.

    Hi Jason,

    The Layout distribute options that are in 32bit Pro (from the Align Objects dialog) have now been added to MapInfo Pro 17.0.2.

    They will be on the Layout's Alignment menu. There are actually 2 different ways to distribute; 1) distribute selected objects relative to each other, and 2) distribute selected objects relative to the current page.

    Both of these will be available in 17.0.2 as commands that can be added to the QAT or the Layout mini-toolbar, but only the 1st way has been added to the Alignment menu.

    Is there a date for the release of v17.0.2?
