    Lightbulb County Lines

    In MapPoint 2006, how do you show county lines? It automatically did that in 2004 but 2006 I can not figure out how to show county lines. I do not want to do territories but just map 6-7 areas by a cluster of counties that show the size of the counties. Can anyone help?

    Re: County Lines

    Can you post a screenshot of the same area with the county lines in MapPoint 2004 and the same area without county lines in MapPoint 2006? It seems off if they do not show the same boundaries as before.

    Also, did you do any special steps in MapPoint 2004 to get the boundaries to show?

    Normally I would recommend to start the territory wizard and select Create Manually and County to get the boundaries to show but you say you don't want to do that. ?

    I did not do anything special in 04, it automatically did the lines when you imported the data. I will try the manual option. I do not have 2004 any more.

    Re: County Lines

    I have both installed. Can you post some of the sample data? I will import into both MapPoint 2004 and MapPoint 2006 to see if I can see what you are talking about.

    Did you try to do Territories and select Create Manually?

    Re: County Lines

    I have. And I see that the divisions ARE there if you zoom in, but is there a way to keep them visible when not in zoom mode?? Or is there a way to differentiate at all when looking at the complete state on a screen??

    Thank you so much for any help!
