Line Edit All ( Drawing Editor )

Tool summary :

  • Automatically opens a window for multi-editing all lines that are on shown layers in your current drawing.
  • Shown layers are visible layers (layers marked " Show "). Since Line Edit All works only on visible layers, you can -- prior to activating this tool -- turn off particular layers to exclude lines that are on those layers from being edited.
  • Line Edit All can help you to ensure that lines are drawn consistently. When the Line Edit window opens, you can easily identify mixed entries because they are grayed out . If you then, for example, change the " Pen color ," all lines will be assigned that same pen.
  • The selection of objects that is made prior to using Line Edit All does not affect the operation of the tool, nor does the tool affect the selection. For example, if you have clouds selected before you activate the tool, the clouds remain selected after Line Edit All is done.
  • To invoke Line Edit All and edit all lines that are on shown layers:

    Method 1 : Click the Line Edit All icon. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Objects -- Lines ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning).

    Method 2 : If " Drawing Editor layout style " is ' Classic ', you can use the menu system to choose Objects > Lines > Edit All .

    Method 3, 4 or 5 : Line Edit All can also be invoked using a keyboard shortcut , the context menu , or a mode . For the ' Lightning ' layout style, configuration of the interface is done using Customize Interface .
