This add-in allows a user to copy annotations (freehand text; freehand curved text; freehand shapes, lines, and curves; freehand symbols; freehand bitmaps; and north arrows [maps only]) from one Maptitude map to another or from one layout to another.
- You can copy annotations from map to map or from layout to layout, but not from layout to map (or vice-versa).
- You cannot copy maps from layout to layout. You also cannot copy map legends; these are tied to their parent maps.
- Annotations copied from map to map will appear in the same spot on the world (as opposed to the same spot on-screen). The copy will be a different size if the scales of the two maps differ.
