ISOGEN Symbol Editing

This one was pretty exciting to me. For those of us that have spent anytime trying to work with the symbol editor for ISOGEN, we all know the pain that IS the symbol editor for ISOGEN. Along comes a new hire in the Houston office of ECAD. Matthew Peters shows up, is given the task of taking learning ISOGEN, then writes this after spending about 2 weeks with the software. These are the people that A: make me sick 🙂 and B: I’m VERY glad are on my team, and YOURS! He’s made putting good looking supports, shoes, etc… into ISOGEN an easy step by step. This document should go with the rest of your ISOGEN Bible that I know all of you have saved around there somewhere.

Here’s a couple of screen caps from the document.

You can download the file here ISOGEN Symbol Editor pdf

With any luck we can hope for more of this great work from Matthew in the future.
