Large buffers or circles created in MapInfo Professional are displayed with inaccurate distances

UPDATED: April 4, 2017


When trying to create large diameter Buffers or circles such as 4000 nautical miles, the buffer will be created, but the actual distance covered by the resulting buffer will not display over the actual distance.

An example of the problem can be seen by drawing a circle centered on New York City that would go to Singapore.  When drawn around NYC, the distance may draw correctly.  But, when drawing the same circle starting around Singapore, the circle would not touch NYC, and wind up in the Atlantic Ocean.

Currently, Engineering has determined there is no good way to represent these types of large distances with buffers/circles within MiPro and there is currently no workaround for the problem

This has been filed as a feature request and product enhancement.
