Layer manager - Changeing print style for all layers

Post by Ron Mak » Thu Jan 26, 2006 5:15 am

How do I change the print style for all layers in a dwg? It looks like I should be able to Select All, choose Properties from the context menu, and change it there, but the change doesn't take affect?

It appears, from the testing I have done here, that you can only change the print style for the layers, 1 layer at a time. The Properties dialog does not envoke the change in a print style (although it appears that it should). I will write this up and submit it to IntelliCAD so they can dig into it as they see fit.

This would also apply to changing the colours of multiple layers, right?
This one at a time thing isn't as convenient.

You can change the colour, linetype, on/off, freeze/thaw options for multiple layers in the layer manager. The print style is handled differently and has to be one at a time right now.

Thanks Glen,
I'd tried it several times without success - now it wants to work.
I suspect operator error ;-)
