To create nice and readable topos of the climbing routes, a set of symbols are ready to be used. The following example shows the use of the symbols:
The symbols and the strokes to be used for regular prints in a format A4 or A3 are available as Adobe Illustrator CS5 file. The file can be downloaded here. Unpack the zip file and store the file ClimbingTopoSymbole.ai somewhere on your hard drive.
The use of the symbols and strokes is very simple: Choose in your copy of Adobe Illustrator CS5
→ Window → Symbols → Other Library …
and select the file ClimbingTopoSymbole.ai you just downloaded using the link mentioned above. After loading the file into your current drawing all the symbols are ready to be used.
The same procedure for the strokes: Choose in your copy of Adobe Illustrator CS5
→ Window → Graphic Styles → Other Library …
and select the file ClimbingTopoSymbole.ai you just downloaded using the link mentioned above. After loading the file into your current drawing all the predefined strokes are ready to be used.
If you want to have the symbols always ready to be used, just copy the downloaded file ClimbingTopoSymbole.ai in the installation folder of Adobe Illustrator CS5 on your hard drive:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Symbols
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Graphic Styles
