Ribbon Designer SDK
May I use the Ribbon Designer for real .NET applications?
Frank (customer): May I use the Ribbon Designer for real .NET applications? Without going through a MapBasic sub? What about callings with parametrers?

Use of the Cosmetic Layer
The coordinates system of the Cosmetic Layer cannot be changed. Primarily there are no changeable boundaries there. At a high precision request this layer shouldn't be used for CAD. Significant faults can arise. In addition, the Cosmetic Layer is also used for help-designs and should be empty to this end.
High end construction is not possible within a projected map. It depends on the projection whether a map is isogonal or isometric (or neither). Both can never be correct. This is not a MapCAD or MapInfo problem but the precondition that an illustration of the bent earth works in the two-dimensional level at all. The only isogonal and isometric projection is Non-Earth.
Snap to object nodes
To snap nodes or select objects MapCAD uses a catch circle of its own in numerous functions. You recognize the snap tolerance by the changed cursor icon. This catch circle radius is dynamic. This means that the objects which are coverd by the visible cursor are always selected. Zoom in, if too many objects are found.
