    When I use the Drag Map tool to place a map in excel or word documents I only get a partial section of the raster image, Bing or GeoMap. See example. Any suggestions.
    Partial display when drag map tool used.

    Hi Jodi,

    Which version of MapInfo Pro are you using?  We had this feature in the 32 bit application.  As much as I know, this is not supported in the 64bit application.

    You can try pasting an EMF or Bitmap layers into word or excel.  It is also a limitation from MS office that does not support MapInfo map objects anymore.

    The Options > Preferences > Systems Settings Preferences shows the option "Copy MapInfo Map Objects to clipboard" disabled in the 64 bit version.

    Hi Shweta, I am using  Mapinfo 2019 64 bit and after a little playing around with those settings (see my clip)  I have got it to work.

    Thanks.
