here my situation...(odd one bear with me here) a friend of mine whos a botanist, works at a greenhouse and uses a mac, asked me if i know an easier way of doing a certian task. this task requires my friend to draw basic symbols of plants with brances and leaves. each branch has a number of leaves represetned by lines and circles. in the circles are numbers...which represent something i cant remeber...this whole botinist thing. anyways....my friend needs a template of this so one can go in there and cange the color of some cirlces and change the numbers in the cirlcles...everthing else is not to be changed. so basically i need a template. now im sure one can do this by making a program...but im not a programmer....so im wondering if there is any other way to get this done that you all may know of that i dont?....the only thing i can think of is doing it in illustrator. if not ill just tell my freind to ask a programmer. i know this sounds wierd but hell i dont care im still shooting it out.
