Products affected: MapInfo Pro Advanced™
Product Feature: Raster

The detailed steps below show how to partly utilize the Merge feature to assign a known projection to the Raster/Grid files without actually merging them.

1. Open Merge tool via RASTER > Raster Operations > Merge > browse all the files to be imported.User-added image

2. Choose the projection. This projection will be applied to all the files

3. Once the files are listed in the Rasters to Merge section, the TAB files for each of the files should have been created with the selected projection.

4. After this the Merge tool can be closed and users can proceed with opening all the TAB files at once without being prompted to specify the projection each time.

Please note that it is recommended to merge ASCII files into one raster as this would give much better performance and control.
