Does C3D11 contain a symbol library for things like the north arrow, handicap symbols and the like?

Check the Tool Palletes - they have all sorts of sample content.

There's also tons of free symbols if you search the web.

You're welcome. I presume that means you found it. I wondered why the reply to your post bombed out.:smileysurprised:

As mentioned. Design Center is well suited for this. You can also add any blocks you want to a ToolPalette. Any block you use regularly should be part of your template.

 

We only use 2 different north arrows. One for plans and one for presentations. Both are in our template and can be accessed by the Insert command.
