    Changing Default View

    Hi all,

    I am looking to modify a map of Illinios. Initially mappoint loads and I am staring at the whole US. Is there a file located somewhere that speicifies what view it automatically goes to- and if so, how can I change that view to a particular state??

    You have to change the default template, here is what the help file says

    Whenever you open a new MapPoint map, it is based on a default template (New North American Map.ptt) with specific settings. If you want to change these settings, you can do so by changing this default template. For example, you can change the default template so that it shows the Route Planner pane, is zoomed into a specific map area, and is set to the political map style each time that you open a new map.

    Create a new map or modify an existing map with the features you'd like to see whenever you open a new map.
    How?

    On the File menu, click Save As.
    Click the arrow next to the Save as type box, and then choose Map Template from the list.
    In the Save in box, browse to Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint \Templates, and click New North American Map.ptt.
    Click Save.
    When prompted about replacing New North American Map.ptt, click Yes.
    Your map replaces the MapPoint default template.
