Resolve Map frames and objects drawn directly to the Layout Designer in MapInfo Pro do not align

Issue

Map frames and objects drawn directly to the Layout Designer in MapInfo Pro do not align.  When a Map frame is created on a layout along with directly drawing a layout "shape" object, the borders are slightly offset.

Cause

This was a design consideration made by Engineering due to the way Windows creates these type of objects.

Resolution

UPDATED: April 10, 2017


For maps and other frame types the border of the frame is drawn Outside the bounds of the the map.

Maps, browsers, legends, text, images all display borders by assigning the color/thickness to the DesignerItem itself. And because drawing a DesignerItem border on the outside of the DesignerItem rectangle, the border appears on the outside of the frame.

Shapes are the odd ones out because they are not drawing the border of the designer item at all which is why the slight offset is present.
