Hi Avenza, thanks for creating this community discussion area. I have two MAPublisher feature requests.
1) The ability to copy and paste *only* attributes from one object to another. Perhaps you could implement this through a special keyboard command, used in conjunction with the AI Eyedropper Tool, to copy only attributes and not the appearance information. Also, having the option to copy all attribute columns or only selected columns would be icing on the cake. I could use this feature right now for taking the tedium out of creating the new Natural Earth database.
2) When importing data, MAPublisher automatically generalizes paths and polygons that exceed the 32k anchor point limit of Adobe Illustrator. This can result in inconsistent detail. For example, the continental coastline of Canada with 32,000 + points is generalized but PEI with fewer points is not. As an option to automatic generalization, MAPublisher could allow the importation of big objects at full resolution by breaking them into contiguous pieces with fewer than 32k points.
