Legend sample swatches convert to raster during print or export. Even though TrueType point symbols render as text on the screen, they convert to raster during printing or exporting.

Legend sample swatches and objects draw differently in map frames, so legend and map samples may not exactly match.

MapInfo Pro 15.2.2 and later improves the appearance of legend swatches for fill patterns with transparent background and layer translucency.

To blend the legend sample with the items they overlap, run the following MapBasic statement in the MapBasic window. To open this window, on the HOME tab, in the Windows group, click Tool Windows, and click MapBasic from the list.
