Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Quick properties, part of Learning AutoCAD LT 2016.
- So let's look now at the properties of your…elements and objects in your AutoCAD LT drawings.…Now what we're going to look at…is the ability to select properties,…manipulate the properties and also match properties…between objects in our AutoCAD LT drawings.…Now if you select any object in any drawing,…I can select a dimension…and you'll see up here in the…Properties palette on the Home tab,…that the properties change.…Now the Object Color, the Lineweight and the Linetype…are controlled by the layer in this case.…
And there's the layer there on the object selected.…So you can use the Layer tools…to obviously change the properties of the dimensions.…So I could go into the Layer Properties manager, here,…change the color.…One of the quicker ways of changing the color though,…is to do this, click on the flyout like that…and there's our layer there highlighted.…It's the plan dimensions there.…So I can click on that little box there.…If I change them all to red, like that, click on OK.…You'll see that they all update to red,…
