Graphics Export - Export graphics to a shapefile incl. a legend (convert graphic to shape)

With this function you can export graphics of the view into a shapefile. Colors and symbols are stored in a legend file of the same name, so all exported shapes are totally identical with the original graphics (comparable functions of other extensions are called Convert Graphics to Shape but don't keep colors and symbols). This enables you to use themes instead of graphic elements with all advantages: they can be used in several projects at the same time, changes will take effect in all projects and the priority can be changed easily by moving the themes in the table of contents. Graphic labels can't be exported into a shapefile (to export graphic labels into an AutoCad annotation theme use the function Annotations Export).
