In MapInfo, after I import an ioGAS data file using the Discover ioGAS import utility, I want to export my work into a pdf file, now my symbols all appears as squares!

A: This was an issue identified in MapInfo when you chose to print from the Layout window. What usually happens when the layout window is exported as a PDF file, the shapes appear different to the ones seen in the ioGAS data file (even though colors and sizes appear normal). One solution in MapInfo is to go to File>Print to PDF from a Map or Layout Window with any ET font set displayed and ensure Enhanced Rendering is disabled for the mapper (accessible from Map>Options menu). This will ensure that the shapes as seen in ioGAS will carry on through when exported as a pdf file from MapInfo.
