Increasing horizontal number of map graphs



We'd like to stretch the map display over a wide screen (or two screens) but it doesn't seem to resize allowing more than 7 graphs horizontally. We'd like at least twice that.

I've tried the Settings -> Layout -> Absolute Width but above a certain width it has no further effect on the number of graphs. How can I do this, please?

Dear David,

may I ask the exact settings of your map and which exact map-object(s) we are talking about?

best regards.

Hi Torsten, I suspect that I've been imprecise by talking about 'map display' so my apologies.

The desktop space allocated for this app for our previous version was 2 x 1280x1024 screens with a single desktop extended horizontally across these. This allowed us to display over 50 graphs comfortably.

Now that we have upgraded we're looking to replicate this display configuration as closely as possible. All of my attempts to place more than 7 graphs horizontally have failed though.

Many thanks for your time.
