2014 is going to be a big year!
Survey We here at Pitney Bowes Software are gearing up for a big year in 2014. For one thing, you can look forward to us covering the transformational improvements we are making to MapInfo Professional.

In case you had not heard, an increased investment in the software was started in January 2013. MapInfo Professional users will start benefiting from these developments later this year. Look for coverage in future issues.

To better understand and better serve all of you, we like to run short surveys and are kicking off the year with a new one. Click here to answer this 10 question survey!

Of course, we’ll continue to bring you tips, tricks, techniques and advice as well. In that vein this issue includes an Easy Tip on saving mouse clicks with Directory Preferences. For Something a Bit More Advanced, Anika Claire covers techniques for labeling with more than one column at a time and using other expressions. Licensing is a boring but necessary topic and in our continuing coverage of what’s new in MapInfo Professional v12.0 we have a short article on the licensing related improvements. Finally we offer some handy tips on using MapInfo Professional’s Tool Manager.

As always, please forward this issue on to any MapInfo Professional Users who might benefit from learning more about the software!
