Property to change: Color Elevation LAyer LType ltScale LWeight Thickness PRintstyle: To change an entity's color, choose Color. To change an entity's elevation, choose Elevation. To change the layer in which an entity resides, choose LAyer. To change an entity's linetype, choose LType. To change an entity's linetype scale, choose ltScale. To change an entity's lineweight, choose LWeight. To change an entity's three-dimensional thickness, choose Thickness. To change an entity's print style, choose PRintstyle (available only for drawings that use named print style tables).

To change the color to an index color

Choose Color.

New color [Truecolor/COlorbook] <BYLAYER>: Enter a new color. You can enter a color value from the standard Windows palette (1-255), 0 for BYLAYER, 256 for BYBLOCK, or you can enter the name of one of the seven standard colors (red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, magenta, and white), or choose BYLAYER or BYBLOCK.

To change the color to a true color

Choose Color.

New color [Truecolor/COlorbook] <BYLAYER>: Choose Truecolor.

Red, Green, Blue: Enter the RGB value of the desired true color. The RGB value are the Red, Green, and Blue values, separated by a comma, for example: 15,105,210.

To change the color to a color book color

Choose Color.

New color [Truecolor/COlorbook] <BYLAYER>: Choose COlorbook.

Enter Color Book name: Enter the name of the desired color book. This is the name entered in the .acb color book file using the <bookName> and </bookName> XML tags. The color book must be located in the folder where progeCAD searches for color books. By default, color books are located in the same folder where you installed progeCAD. To verify the folder location, choose Options from the Tools menu, click the Paths/Files tab, and find the Color Book folder in the Paths list.

Enter color name: Enter the name of the desired color that is available in the named color book.

To change the elevation

Changing the elevation of two-dimensional entity changes its position on the z-axis. To change the elevation of a two-dimensional entity, all points on the entity must have the same elevation.

Choose Elevation.

New elevation <0.0000>: To accept the current elevation, press Enter. Or enter a new value.

To change the layer

Choose LAyer.

New layer <0>: Enter the name of the layer with which you want the entities associated.

To change the linetype

Choose LType.

New linetype <CONTINUOUS>: Enter the name of a new linetype.

If the linetype you enter is not already loaded, the program tries to load the linetype from icad.lin. If the program cannot locate the linetype in this file, use the Linetype command to load the linetype file.

To change the linetype scale

Choose ltScale.

New linetype scale <1.0000>: To accept 1.0000, the default, press Enter, or enter a new linetype scale.

To change the lineweight

Choose LWeight.

New lineweight (-3 to 211) <-1>: To accept -1, the default, press Enter, or enter a new lineweight.

To change the thickness

Changing the thickness of a two-dimensional entity changes the entity's z-direction thickness. You cannot change the thickness of a three-dimensional polyline, dimension entity, or viewport entity.

Choose Thickness.

New thickness <0.0000>: Enter a new thickness.

To change the print style

Changing the thickness of a two-dimensional entity changes the entity's z-direction thickness. You cannot change the thickness of a three-dimensional polyline, dimension entity, or viewport entity.

Choose PRintstyle.

Enter print style name or [?] <BYLAYER>: To accept BYLAYER, the default, press Enter, or enter a new print style name. Enter ? to view a list of available print styles.
