Hello MapInfo Professional Users

Here is your March 2013 issue of "The MapInfo Professional". In case you have not heard, WindowHelper v2.0 is out. 

We wrote about this in the September issue last year and since then Peter Moeller has made some really handy improvements.

It is the feature for the "Rummaging in the Toolbox" section this month.

Also, the Query Ninja is back and we have a great little easy tip for you too. Enjoy!
