Save properties to and recall properties from property sets

Saving properties to property sets allows you to re-use them elsewhere.

Save properties from the Properties window to a new property set

Note: You can only save properties in the Properties window to a property set when there are no entities selected. This ensures that each property in the property set has an unique entry.
  1. From the Model, Design, or Foundations ribbon tab, click the entity type whose properties you want to save as a property set.

    The list on the top of the Properties window now reads <unsaved set>.

  2. Specify the properties according to your needs.
  3. Click the Save... button on the top right corner of the Properties window.

    The Add property set dialog box opens.

  4. Name the property set.
  5. Click OK.

Save the properties of an existing entity to a named property set

  1. Hover the mouse pointer over the desired entity until it becomes highlighted.
  2. Right-click the entity.
  3. In the context menu select Create property set... (and if the entity is a beam or column or wall, select the span or stack required).

    The Add property set dialog box opens.

  4. Name the property set.
  5. Click OK.

Recall a previously saved property set to the Properties Window

Provided that you have previously saved a property set, you can recall it again later in the Properties window, if it is applicable to the current command.

  1. From the Model, Design, or Foundations ribbon tab, click the desired entity type.

    The properties applicable to the selected entity type are displayed in the Properties window.

  2. Click the list on the top of the Properties window.
  3. In the list, select the desired property set.
