Inspired by the work of cartographers. Modifying text items of a map, translating them to other language is a huge manual work. There is a serious chance for mistyping and other defects if the map contains more thousand labels. This little application helps for cartographers in this task but it’s also useful for the overview and modifying of texts in vectorbased formats. The application collects text items from the vector-based file and gives a simple and clear interface for searching and editing while keeping the graphical content untouched. For the import and modification of texts, it requires the appropriate version of Adobe® Illustrator®. Text editing only requires Adobe® Reader® (for preview panel). This is useful in cases when these two activities are separated (eg. when more people work on the same project, they work on different computers or when data mobility is important). The modified and changed text items keep their coordinates and where possible the formatting styles. Of course this doesn’t mean there is no need for checking. There may be different lengths of text, which may need manual correction. There is an option to change the color of modified text parts, wich is very helpful for checking the new texts.
