It would be very nice to be able to export Cartographic Representation Symbols to SVG, EMF, EPS, etc. so they can be re-used for other purposes and contexts.

For example as it stands now (Arcmap v10.2.1) one can't display a CR symbol in the legend at a different size than it's being used in the map, something we do very often. So I resort to a length workaround of recreating the symbol in vector drawing program like Illustrator or Inkscape and then bringing it back in again as a picture or normal  Picture Fill Symbol.

Additionally, the Marker Editor of CR should be be the default symbol editor for all of Arcmap, meaning it should replace Symbol Property Editor.  While we're at it, the Maker Editor should be able to import and export, at least, SVG and EMF.
