Figure Prefixes Editor
 
 
 

Use this dialog box to view and edit the properties of a figure prefix.

Name

Specifies the name for the figure prefix. The prefix name is used to match on a figure name at figure creation-time, for example when importing a field book file.

Breakline

Specifies that the matched figures can be used as breaklines (when creating surface breaklines from figures).

Lot Line

Specifies that the figure behaves as a parcel segment. When this property is selected and the figure is inserted into drawing, the figure behaves as a parcel segment in the site that it is placed on. Figures with this property may create parcels and can be labeled as parcel segments.

Layer

Specifies the layer that the figure object is placed on when inserting figures into a drawing. When there is a prefix match, the following occurs:

  • If the specified layer exists in the drawing, the figure is placed on that layer.
  • If the specified layer does not exist in the drawing, the layer is created and the figure is placed on the specified layer.
Style

Specifies the figure style that is assigned to the figure when the figure is inserted into a drawing. When there is a prefix match, the following occurs:

  • If the specified style name exists in the drawing, the style is used.
  • If the specified style does not exist in the drawing, it is created with the specified name.
Site

Specifies the site name that is assigned to the figure if a figure prefix match occurs. The figure is placed in this site when it is inserted into a drawing. If the site name does not exist in the current drawing it is created.
