“I have two clients using iCMTGIS Pro and they’re asking how to save custom feature symbols, colors and patterns in a feature list. For instance, how do you manage various patterns/colors for several area features, lines and points?”
In the Help document please select “Set up Feature List”.
Under “Editing a Feature List”, there is this instruction:
“Mark the Activate Pattern checkbox to see the Pattern column displayed in the Value section.” After marking the Activate Pattern checkbox, you will be able to assign different symbols, colors and patterns to different types of Points, Lines and Areas on the active Topic layer.
After you have saved the Features List, you will be able to select that Feature List to use with a Job. You can do so in the Job Setup screen after selecting Job – Open Job.
If the clients are looking to create their own custom symbols, then they would need to use PC-GIS X to edit the symbols on one of the symbols pages (such as Forestry1, Forestry2 or Surveyor) then use iTunes to copy the corresponding symbols library file to the documents folder for iCMTGIS PRO. For example, for the point symbols, the file names corresponding to Forestry1, Forestry2 and Surveyor are cmtpnt01.lib, ctpnt02.lib and cmtpnt03.lib, respectively. Please note that these files are case sensitive in iCMTGIS PRO. Close the app by double-clicking the Home button of the iOS device. Then reopen the app to see the available new symbols.
