Overview of Object Classification
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

Object classification helps organize and select objects in your drawings.

Use object classification to organize objects in your drawing based on the real-world features that they represent, for example, roads or manholes. When you create an object using object classification, the object automatically has properties and values assigned to it based on its object classification. In addition, you can find or select all objects in an object class.

Setting Up Object Classification

When you select an object that was created using object classification, the properties that are associated with that object class are displayed on the Object Class tab of the Properties palette. For example, when you select a road, the Properties palette shows you the layer, line weight, surface type, and number of lanes. Edit properties by entering new values in the window.

When you select a road in your drawing, the Object Class tab shows all the properties associated with the object class Road. Edit a value by clicking in the box and selecting an item from the list.
