Modify drawing object properties

You can change the properties of the objects in the drawings such as parts, marks, bolts, and welds, and save the object properties files for later use.

  1. Open a drawing.
  2. Double-click the object that you want to modify.

    For example, double-click a part or a bolt, or a reinforcing bar.

  3. Change the desired properties.
  4. Give a new name for the properties file and save the file.

    Note that you should not use spaces or special characters in the properties file names.

  5. If you want to apply the change in the object, click Modify.

Now you have a new object properties file. You can load the properties in this file in other drawing objects, in this case, parts. You can also use the object properties files with filters to apply detailed object level settings.
