ESRI has an old set of PDFs from 2004 showing all the symbols available in ArcGIS at the time and their names. I don't need it often but if I'm searching for a certain symbol and don't know its name it's sometimes easier to look at a few sheets of paper than to use the Symbol Selector. It doesn't seem like it's been updated for ArcGIS 10, though. I was wondering if anyone is aware of a new version of this, or if anyone has created one on their own they might be willing to share.

  • If you havn't found it yet I can email you a zipped file of all symbology.

The answer is no. I just saw a blog on the mapping center a week or two ago.
They are working on version 10 now.
Here is a 9.3v PDF.

another location for symbol sets on the mapping center.

    1500+ pages, that's going to be a pretty penny to print!

Matt are you looking for Symbols to Print from ArcGIS 10?

Credit to Brad Nesom on GIS Stack Exchange Is there ArcGIS Symbol Library PDF for ArcGIS Desktop i.e. index for symbols/line weights?

  • Those are extra downloadable styles, ones that aren't shipped with Arcgis. I'm looking for a printable document (or means to create one) of the as-shipped styles to use for quick reference and means of selection. My question is the same as the linked one, they could be merged. Commented Mar 27, 2012 at 17:33

This is not current but its a start: http://downloads2.esri.com/support/documentation/ao_/Utilities.pdf

  • Ooh, that looks really helpful! Do you know if there are similar PDFs for the other style references?

    Would you be able to edit your Answer to summarise what is in the PDF file that you have linked to?
