Re-using symbols library in Vista

Issue

Re-using symbols library in Vista

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • TAC Vista IV
  • OGC Graphics Editor

Cause

You can re-use your symbol library that you created in a Vista data base to avoid having to recreate symbols every time you start a new Vista db. After adding or editing symbols in the graphic editor, your changes are stored in the $tmp folder in your db as $symbol.sym. You can use this file or use the database generator to export the $Symbol file to your $wrk folder.

Resolution

To use a saved .SYM file

  1. Find the $symbol object in you database (in workstation)
  2. Right click and select properties.
  3. Click on the last line, a browse button should appear.
  4. Click on the browse button and browse in the saved .SYM file
