Exporting ESRI Style file to Adobe

Hi guys,
           just wondering if anyone can help, the company I work for has a large bespoke legend that for production reasons needs reproducing in Adobe Illustrator, the best way to do this would be to import all of the colour swatches and picture/feature fills and line types as a library.

However Adobe does not recognise the ESRI .style file that contains all of our legend information, is it possible to export the aforementioned .style file into a format that would be compatible with Adobe Illustrator?

If this is indeed possible then how do I do it?

Someone mentioned a plug in called MAPublisher, any thoughts or users?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
                 Peter Birch

Have a look at this link http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/21180 and see if you can print to PDF. If you can do that you can open the PDF in Illustrator.

I have had to do this before but because I only had 10s items it was quicker to drawn them manually in Illustrator! It would be good if ESRI could add an export STYLE feature where you can export to Illustrator.

Hope that helps
