Update: Version 3 of this tool is now available. See this post.
Here’s a simple but very useful app I’ve made for MapInfo. It stores map views in a table which is attached to the workspace. You can then go straight back to that view rather than scrolling for hours trying to find out where you were!
It’s similar to the “NamedViews” app which comes with MapInfo but saves the views to a table on a per-workspace basis rather than saving a set that is unique to the MapInfo installation.
NOTE: This app isn’t entirely accurate. (See discussion here) When going back to a saved view it will centre on the right coordinates but the scale will be slightly off. This is annoying but it’s still a lot quicker than doing it the manual way. If you know a way around this, please get in touch!
