WHITE FRAMING OF PURPLE CONTROL NUMBER
Hubert Klauser of OCAD Inc quickly responded re this topic (see about 6 entries above)as follows;

"The white outline has some advantages (I use it often) but it cannot be used together with the overprint flag in the same symbol. If the white would not background the whole number, you would have problems with flickering between the purple and the white."

Hubert says there is no solution to the flickering of which he is aware. But if you do know a CS brand that can handle properly, white framing with overprint effect,then Hubert (and I) are keen to know of it.

I haven't tried blend mode in place of overprint flag but as Hubert mentioned it, but not as a solution, and as there is no obvious interaction between blend mode and framing, I expect the same result.

I do hope you North Islanders and WMOC/Oceania are not adversely impacted by the weather QLD has been sending you. Looks bad in the bay of Plenty.

Regards, Ken

Thanks very much Ken! I can confirm it is the same with PurplePen and as soon as I turned off the white framing on the numbers the overprint effect was back.

Obviously with numbers there is leeway in their position, but I found the need for overprint especially when using pivots; lots of numbers to fit in, combined with competitors potentially approaching the controls from many different directions.

Thanks for the weather, could QLD please send sunshine this week?
There's a weather related update for Oceania Middle: http://oceania2017.nz/newsupdates/

Looks like more substantial rain through the middle of this week, although the Easter weekend itself (except perhaps for Friday) doesn't look too bad at this stage.

I've added the following to the mapping Wiki under OCAD Symbol Table Maintenance.

I write a report for each map I deliver and I'm including the same thing each time - the “hidden symbols” that I add for internal cartographic purposes. So I've put them on my website as www.mapsport.co.nz/mappershiddensymbols.html

ISOM 2017 symbol sets are available in the latest OCAD 11 and 12 service updates.

The IOF website has a document describing the ISOM2017 changes. Find it via http://orienteering.org/resources/mapping/international-specification-for-orienteering-maps-isom-2017/

Note: dimensions are
specified in mm at
the scale of 1:15 000.
All drawings are at
1:7 500 for clarity only.

Oh the irony!

I do like the irony!

There has been an updated version of ISOM 2017 published on 1 May.

I am happy to report they fixed the overprint illustration. The example now shows up correctly for me, plus the two boulders have more space between them.

Wonderful Paul:-))

Good one Paul, and at 1:7500 my old eyes still need glasses to see the samples!
