- [Instructor] With the grading all done…it's time to clear some things up…and do some labeling.…Let's dig in.…The first thing I'll do is manage a style or two…with my Feature Lines.…And I'm looking at this Feature Line here…that represents the depression that we created…to prevent drainage from running into the building,…and I actually want this depicted in my grading plan.…I want to show this swale that we've defined here…and I want to show it with a dashed line.…And the most effective way to that…is with a Feature Line Style.…
So I've gone in and created a Feature Line Style…that will do what I want it to do.…And I've called the style Site Grading Swale.…Click OK and now I see this represented…in a dashed green line.…Now styles are great,…but they can be really tricky sometimes.…For example, if I click on this Feature Line…and I just take a first glance at it…it appears that it's on this layer…C TOPO F-E-A-T for Feature,…but really that's the layer of the object.…
Embedded within the object is the layer…dictated by the style.…
