Override Layer Properties

 

 

 

 

You can display objects differently by setting property overrides for color, linetype, lineweight, status, and plot style and apply them to individual layout viewports.

Using property overrides is an efficient way for displaying objects with different property settings in individual layout viewports. For example, objects can be made to display more prominently by changing their color.

When the Layout Properties Manager is accessed from the menu File->Layout..., the following four columns for layer property overrides are displayed:

Name
Status
On/Off
Color
Line Type
Line Weight
Line Comment
