How is it possible to use image that blink or change (animate) as symbol in mapinfo? I tried to create custom symbol that blink in mapinfo but after I added it as symbol it didn't blink. Have I done something wrong?

You can't use animated gifs as symbols Kitex, and I assume this is what you are trying to use. Once you import them, and use them, they simply become gifs.
