Text problem when exporting to Adobe Illustrator or PDF
I am creating transit maps from base maps created with the City GIS System. When I receive either the PDF or AI file, the text is split into individual letters. It takes me a considerable amount of time to recreate the text on the map. Do you have a suggestion as to prevent the text from splitting and that the word (i.e., streetname) can be edited/selected as a whole instead of letters? (see attached)
Thanks a lot
Mapping Center Answer:
The AI format exported from ArcMap should maintain text strings. Please contact ESRI Technical Support Services find out what is happening in your individual case as there could be a variety of contributing factors. You can contact Tech Support from the tab here on the Ask a Cartographer page.
