Is there anyway to retain/easily transfer symbology from ESRI to Mapinfo? The only process I found was posted in 2010 - https://groups.google.com/group/mapinfo-l/browse_thread/thread/883223ff4ae56809 and it is rather convoluted and supposed to be unreliable.
ArcGIS 10 and Mapinfo 11 are the core programs.
This is related to Is it possible to convert an ESRI style sheet to a font set? and Create a summary table of the symbology of all datasets in multiple mxd's as possible workarounds.
