I am looking for a way to create text on a MapInfo layer using Polylines. So on a MapInfo layer, I need to create a line dataset, but I am after forming words - labelling items is not going to work for me. Are there any tools that can help do this? I have tried doing it freehand using a polyline, and a polyline with autonode mode selected, but frankly it looks rubbish

    If I read your question right, you want to create text using polylines? Out of curiosity, can I ask why you're trying to do that? What is that you are attempting to achieve? There might be an alternative solution to get to your end goal. – Morgan Ellingham Mar 28 '14 at 0:32
  • basically I want to create a layer of watermarks as a vector layer - labelling grids etc is not working satisafactorily in my use case. – Mark Mar 28 '14 at 11:58
  • Could you use a layer of text objects instead? – Peter Horsbøll Møller Mar 31 '14 at 14:24
  • text gets converted to points unfortunately – Mark Apr 1 '14 at 9:49
