Using AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 Im exporting a few subdivisions to MapInfo after doing my steps on a MAPEXPORT command to create a .TAB or .MIF / .MID which are the steps do below.



MAPEXPORT --> select format_ .TAB or .MIF ---> select my drawing manually  ----> do my coordinate conversion -----> DONE..



When in MAPINFO and ready to open / import the exported .TAB it opens and places the drawings (subdivisions) in its correct coordinate I gave it, but the TEXT and ARC / CIRCLES do not come in to scale at all they are extremely large to a point where they can't be seen till I do a zoom all...


How can I fix this ....

Ain't Mapinfo to test your issue, but I fear there's no chance to fix it, sir.

As a workaround, before _MAPEXPORTing, try to convert arc/circles to polylines, thru this tool.

I converted the arcs / circles to polylines and it worked when imported to mapinfo. The text on the othe hand still way off scale.

Thanks for the tip!
