Altering Properties Using Object Properties
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
NoteThis procedure applies only to drawing objects.

To alter retrieved objects based on their properties

  1. In Map Explorer, under Current Drawing, right-click Current Query, and then click Define.
  2. In the Define Query dialog box, load or create a query that retrieves the objects you want to alter.
  3. In the Define Query dialog box, click Alter Properties.
  4. In the Set Property Alterations dialog box, under Select Property, select the property to change.

    For example, if you have color-coded the objects in your drawing and you now want to move objects to layers based on their color, you would select Layer as the property to change.

  5. In the Expression area, click Properties and select the property that you want to base the change on.

    In this example, we want to move objects based on their current color, so select Color.

    Click OK to close the Select Property dialog box.
