    "Currently, the overlay maps command does not prompt the user to see which limits should be used. As a result, the larger source map limits are applied. I will add your vote for an option to keep the current limits to our suggestion file. In the meantime, the post layer can be dragged and dropped into the Map containing the base layer.

    This will maintain the map limits of the Map containing the base layer.

     In the Object Manager, click the Post layer and drag it into the map that contains the Base layer. This will overlay the maps."

    I just found that by adding the data as a POST-LAYER rather than a POST MAP maintains the limits.

    Hi Joe,

    You are correct that adding the new map layer using the Home | Add to Map | Layer command or by dragging the layer into the desired map will retain the original map limits.  Additional information about this can be found in the article Is there a way to overlay or update a map in Surfer without reverting to the default scale and limits?

    Thanks!

    Katie
