Being new to your software, I have downloaded your lite version. I also downloaded the free maps of the 50 US states with county boundaries. However when I try to use them it is not working out very well. When I try to select the map in the library they are not there so I have to use the "Add new maps in the library" button which takes me to the correctly placed folder. When I click on the map I need it comes up in Windows Editor, not in BeGraphic. There is no place to click on "Insert in Excel".

Dear BeGraphic user,

Depending on where is your "Program files" folder, our BeGraphic sub-folder will follow.
Don't try to put them in Excel by yourself (Because Excel has many bugs that we had to work around)
Always use our "Geographic Map" function (the "earth" button) to insert a new map inside Excel.

If you want to add some extra maps, you have to import the WMF file (geographic map) into the right folder as it is explained below:
  • How-to-do: Download using WMF format and put them in C:\Program Files\BeGraphic\BeGraphic\Content\Maps
  • Following steps: by looking at videos
  • Here in the BeGraphic Forum, you will find many other answers

To get an example of how to make a data-driven map, you can click on the "Examples of usage" button
(inside the "Example & Help" menu, at the right side of the ribbon).
