Re: symbol question
- You can undock the symbol library toolbar and extend its edges as
needed to see all the symbols. Then dock it again if you want it out
of the way. I think "City" is the category that has the most icons,
so if you can fit the toolbar for it, the other categories should all

symbols "wrap" so that they're on more than one line, and I don't see
any way to scroll left-right in the row of symbols that are
displayed. So basically you can only have as many symbols on a "tab"
that will fit on one row in the AutoRealm window....
I humbly submit that this whole symbol-tab interface needs
reevaluation. Here is my suggestion: a palette that automatically
wraps the symbols if the palette isn't wide enough to show them on
one row. It should also scroll up-down if there are more rows of
symbols than can be fit into the palette's current size. Rather than
tabs at the top, there should be a drop-down box that lists the names
of the symbol libraries.
If the symbol library palette was reworked in this fashion, the
symbols would be easier to get to, there'd be no need to scroll back
and forth through the tabs, and less space would be wasted on the
names of the symbol libraries.
