So, when of my old symbols, I do not get the symbol, but only an empty box. My other older symbols work just fine.
Does anyone know why?
Can you clarify this? Its not clear when this is happening for you.
I'll wager that:
1) The symbol catalog is in a different location than when the map was made, and
2) the no embed flag is set in that catalog's default.xml file. The effect: The symbol is not embedded in the map but raher drawn out of the catalog by reference. As a result, the symbol can't be found in its new location.
I have NBOS version 1.02f
And yes, the symbols were made on a long, decommissioned computer. BUT, they worked on previous computers.
Where do you have it installed on your drive? If its installed into a directory that has spaces in its name, 1.02f, which is a Windows 3.1 program that expects strict 8.3 file naming, may not be able to handle that.
It worked! Thanks! I had the same symbols for years now, but I hadn't used them on this computer; I checked the directory, and it was the only symbol folder with a space in it's name. I just have to change my symbols text.
