I've been making a modern map for quite some time, and I was wondering if there is a brush for a "Dot" for a modern city, as in the small dot you place next to a city name. Thanks.

I use symbols from a Wing Dings font for mine. If you're on Windows, you can easily view and copy the glyphs in a font with the Character Map: Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map.
Adobe's Carta font also has some useful symbols. I don't know if it's legal or not, but that font can be downloaded from ufont.com.

You can also buy Adobe Carta (and see its glyph set) from Adobe: http://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&event=displayFont&code=CARQ10006000

Oh, I've been lurking about; I just haven't had much time to contribute lately.
