Automatic symbol assignment to Features imported from Shapefiles

Questions from a PC-MAPPER user:

1- Is it possible to automatically assign colors and symbols to the Features when importing Shapefiles into to the map (job)?

2- Is it possible to take 3 or 4 topics at the same time and to move them up (or down) at the same time instead of taking them one by one?

Both questions are for saving precious time.

If you always deal with the same set of Feature Topics, you could create a master job file (using PC-GIS, PC-GPS, PC-MAPPER, or CMT-Forester)  with the desired symbols assigned to the Topics (without any Features in the Topics). You could also arrange the Topics the way you like.

Whenever you want to work with a new job, you would open this master job file and save it under the new job file name. Then when you import the Shapefiles, the shapes should come into the job with the desired Topic symbols and in the desired order.
