Default Are those poker card Symbols: spade, heart,club, diamond available in AI10?


I did search here and google. I cannot find any free solution except drawing by myself.

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much.

Rgds.

Eddie,

At least, in 10 for Windows there is no such step 2 choice, Type>Glyphs; so maybe the advice should start with 0. Change to Mac ...

Use the Windows Character Map. Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Character Map. Arial font is the first one and has the symbols (others probably do also). Select, copy, and paste into a text line in Illustrator, then select the text and Type> Create Outlines. steve

Jacob, you're absolutely correct... thanks for the correction. Alan, my apologies for the wrong answer (I typed it out before my morning coffee). And to myself, 1 day of hard labor using Cricket Draw. Eddie

Eddie, Jacob and Stephen, thanks for help.
Quite strange. After I copied the spade in "Character Map", to paste it in photoshop is ok but to paste in AI just shows a question mark "?" by the Type tool under any font.
Therefore, my temporary solution is to make it become Shape in PS and then copy and paste it to AI.
