If you haven't noticed yet, we released an enhanced version of the Grid and Graticules tool (MAPublisher 8.7 and higher). With the new Grid and Graticules tool, you will find that you can export grid settings and save them. Most importantly, these grid settings files can be shared and imported to another document.
Once a grid is created, save the settings to a *.cfg file. Two configuration files are created per grid: grid settings and label settings.

MAPublisher® FME Auto™ is a new add-on that connects the GIS data processing environment of FME Desktop to the cartographic design and publishing environment MAPublisher and Adobe Illustrator.

FME users can now effortlessly move their data from FME Desktop into the MAPublisher design environment to easily create stunning maps.
