Re-using symbols library in Vista
- TAC Vista IV
- OGC Graphics Editor
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.
To use a saved .SYM file
- Find the $symbol object in you database (in workstation)
- Right click and select properties.
- Click on the last line, a browse button should appear.
- Click on the browse button and browse in the saved .SYM file
