We store all our geologic symbols in a esri style with about 3000 symbols for lines, polygons and points. We often have to change the backgound fill color for only a selection of 1000 symbols. Or change all colors of the symbols in the style from cmyk to rgb. Its hard to do this by hand. We can get a deeper insight of the symbols in the style- file when changing the style to a *.mdb access-db. But the symbol attributes are still hidden in a BLOB we cannot read. There must be a way to manage multiple symbol-attributes in a smarter way instead of opening each symbol and do the changes over and over.
So there are the folowing questions:
1. Is there a way to manage the symbol attributes in a database or tabel view?
2. is there an add-in or programm reading and/or writing style-files?
3. any company or institution who has a soulution for this?
