    Question Map Point 2010 select tool missing

    I have upgraded from MapPoint 2006 to MP 2010. It seems the select tool, that lets me select a rectangle area and zoom to it, or shade it in (while in territories) or export the data for just the selected points to excel is missing. When I looked into help, there is some code for changing the DragProperty:

    DragBehavior property
    Returns or sets the action that results from the user dragging the mouse pointer across the map. Read/write GeoDragBehavior.

    GeoDragBehavior
    Value
    Description
    geoDragBox value 2 Creates a rectangular selection area on the map
    geoDragHand value 1 Shifts the map
    geoDragNone value 0 No action

    Applies to Objects: Map

    Syntax object.DragBehavior

    Parameters Part Description

    object
    Required. An expression that returns a Map object.

    Example
    Sub ChangeDragBehavior()
    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application

    'Set up the application
    objApp.Visible = True
    objApp.UserControl = True

    'Change drag behavior to hand so map can be moved (instead of pan)
    objApp.ActiveMap.DragBehavior = geoDragHand

    End Sub

    I can't figure out how to change this DragBehavior from a value of 1 to 2, which I'd prefer if I can only have one choice. Has anyone else figured this out? I can't even find anyone else who is missing this valuable function in MapPoint 2010.

    The two zoom modes (drag/pan and zoom window) are now on the same button: Try using the right mouse button to draw a zoom box. The functionality is still there just it isn't obvious it has been moved (it is probably in the docs, but none of us read those - we'd fall asleep thinking it was all the same as before)

    Fantastic! I never found any mention of right clicking - the docs appear to be the same instructions/tutorial as in previous versions. But this is wonderful, now I can upgrade to MP2010.
