About MapInfo TAB Files

With AutoCAD Map 3D, you can import and export MapInfo TAB up to version 7.


The TAB format does not support ellipses with an angled bounding box (for example, ellipses whose axes are at an angle to the X and Y axes), so when you export ellipses from AutoCAD Map 3D to TAB, they are segmented. You can change the settings AutoCAD Map 3D uses for segmentation in the mapexport.ini file.

Driver Options

MapInfo TAB has no export driver options.
