so need to study but seem

1) there is drawing to draw shape and drawing to help locate text of label ( position , along a line )

2) create a label manually ll create at once 3 components : 1 label , 1 drawing and 1 table .

3) the table can be use to add a column varchar that ll contain the text data style ( a bti like css ) like that ll apply only to the geom in the same row !!

4) create new label is done in label component !!

5) position label change is done in the drawing . place text can be done using line ( text along line ) or point ( middle of text locatr at point location .

In all case label and drawing have both data locate attach to table

note1 that the each tab in map has 3 states .. See capture screen

note2 a copy paste from real drawing should be available t oavoid start from scratch ( TOTEST)

note2 in the video about layout Frame there is no buttonS to see preview or n oprvious mode before accept change ...

Not sure what you mean. If you mean labels, there is only one drawing on which a labels component is based, not two drawings.

create a label manually ll create at once 3 components : 1 label , 1 drawing and 1 table

Only if you create a new labels component not based on an existing drawing. If you create a new labels component based on an existing drawing you create 1 new component, the labels component.

the table can be use to add a column varchar that ll contain the text data style ( a bti like css ) like that ll apply only to the geom in the same row !!

Only if you have per-record formatting enabled, and it can be any text data type, such as nvarchar.

create new label is done in label component !!

Or in a drawing. Incorrect to write it as you *must* do it in the labels component. See either the older or the new, updated/expanded Labels topic.

position label change is done in the drawing

Or in the labels component. Incorrect to write it as if you *must* do it in the drawing.

each tab in map has 3 states

4 states, not 3 states: A layer can be visible (emphasized, darker text) or hidden (de-emphasized, lighter text), and a layer can be the active layer (emphasized, darker background) or not active (de-emphasized, lighter background).

6) per record style is available only from map component for drawing that has varchar column for store style text formating ( a bit like css ) . per record still is available for drawing but not active , no way to enable it !!

7) the content style in map apply to the active tab of map (grey blend with more black))

8) the of a drawing inside a map can be style using 2 differents ways locate in Content Style drawing and Content style option ??? ( see capture )

does per record style button should be change to the item label if per record style is enable . click on button ill stil open dialog to enable per record style and select colum text style !!

per record style is available only from map component for drawing that has varchar column

Not exactly. Checking the per-record formatting box will automatically create a text field, called "Style" by default, if there is not one yet. Also, it works for any window that includes a drawing or labels component. Also, a text column of any type, such as nvarchar, works. See the release notes for the build that introduced per-record style.

per record still is available for drawing but not active , no way to enable it

The above is incorrect. Check the per-record formatting box in the Style - Options tab.. done! It works just as well for a drawing open in its own window as for a drawing layer in a map. Also works for labels.

the of a drawing inside a map can be style using 2 differents ways locate in Content Style drawing and Content style option ???

Confusing a basic capability with an additional feature. Manifold allows styling an entire layer at once and Manifold also allows per-record style in addition when desired for specific objects.

? I do not understand the point you intend to make. Is it that you like the above or that you dislike the above?

backgound is manage in the map -> cotnent -> layer since background of each drawing can't be take in account !!

What is your point? If you have a question, please ask it. If there is something you think should be done differently, say it. If you just repeat things from the documentation or release notes it is unclear what you intend to communicate.

since background of each drawing can't be take in account !!

Not sure what you mean. If you compose a display using a drawing window that you like, choose Edit - Save as Map to save it as a map.

Yes. Suppose you use Style to set a thematic format for a drawing using a particular field. Next, you turn on per-record style and you change the color of some areas on a per-record basis.

If you now re-visit the Per-Record Style button in Style-Options and uncheck "Use per-record style" you tet the overall style applied to all objects. Check that box again and again you get the per-record style changes you made. If you use a different thematic format for the drawing in Style you can do that and it will affect all objects except those for which you set a per-record style. Uncheck the "use per-record style" box and the new thematic format applies to all objects.
