I will post the area in question below.

Here is the "before" of the legend in ArcGIS, an MXD file: enter image description here

When I export the entire map to AI, it mostly comes into Illustrator just fine, but when I go to look at the textboxes from the legend, those less than or equal to signs have turned into equal signs, what's up with that? enter image description here

I can change them just fine once I'm in Illustrator but it seems to happen every time with those symbols. Is there a setting I can make to fix this?

    What is the font you are using? It looks like it's assigning a new glyph to the ≤ because the parent font doesn't have it. – Ovaryraptor Dec 20 '17 at 15:31

    also @Yorik, there is the "Vectorize layers with bitmap markers/fills". I tried exported with that setting turned on and it didn't change my issue...still getting equal signs. Seems that is related to picture symbols though, and this is text. – rachel.passer Dec 20 '17 at 15:40

    The Google font Open Sans Condensed Light includes the glyph for U+2264 less-than or equal to, so most probably the problem is not the font. – Pepe Ochoa Dec 20 '17 at 16:09

    related? ( support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000008341 ) – Yorik Dec 20 '17 at 16:17

    @Yorik funny enough your suggestion solved another issue I was having with stippling fill rasterizing within polygons when coming from GIS to Illustrator. That setting ensures the stippling is vectorized...so that was cool. :) – rachel.passer Dec 20 '17 at 18:19
