Hi everyone,

I am fairly new to GIS and am in need of some assistance. Right now I am helping the organization that I work for to create maps using ArcEditor. We have a graphic designer who is making the maps look more visually pleasing. I export the GIS files to illustrator and she takes it from there. Unfortunately I don't know illustrator and she doesn't know GIS. Not an ideal situation, but there you have it.

There are two map elements that I seem to be unable to export to illustrator files: an extent rectangle and the scale bar.

Can any of you offer assistance as to how to do this?
