Friday Quiz: Inserting a round detail map in your layout?

  • 1.  Friday Quiz: Inserting a round detail map in your layout?

    Question: Can you insert a round or other type of oddly shaped detailed, or for that matter overview, map into a layout in MapInfo Pro?

    If you think it's possible, how would you do it? Please give your answer in a comment below.

    Below you can see an example of what I'm looking for. The bigger map has a smaller circular map inside.


    PS: It's a trick question. I can be done, but how?

    I used :

    clip region on a second, zoomed in map that had a solid white underlying layer.

    second frame made with no outline and roughly drawn lines to indicate location.

    Beat me to it Nick
    Clip Region of a circle on a cloned, zoomed-in map.

    But how did you get the dotted lines drawn Peter?
    Are you using version 19?​??
    Layout with round insert

    Good job, @John Ievers & @Nick Hall!

    Sounds as if you have used this technic before?​​

    And no, I wasn't using any pre-release of MapInfo Pro 2019. I drew the lines in the map window, not in the layout window. But you are right, John, MapInfo Pro 2019 will re-introduce the fancy line and region styles in the layout window.
