Resolve not being able to save to WMF image format from the Home tab in MapInfo Pro 64-bit

Products affected: MapInfo Pro 64-bit®

Issue

It is not possible to save a layout as a Windows Metafile (WMF) file from the menu bar via Home > Save Image.  In MapInfo Pro 64-bit WMF format is not in the dropdown list.

Cause

 MapInfo Pro 64-bit does not support this image format because the layout designer is almost entirely composed of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) elements and Microsoft doesn't support converting WPF to WMF.

Resolution

UPDATED: October 2, 2017
As a workaround, the WMF format is always available for Map Window export.

Other formats are also available like .bmp, jpg, .jp2, .png, .tif, .gif, .psd, ...
