Overview of Altering the Properties of Queried Drawing Objects
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Use the property alteration feature to modify the properties of queried drawing objects as they are queried into the current drawing.

You can modify object properties such as color, linetype, or polyline width, or add text.

Example: You have a set of city maps that show roads as black polylines of the same width. You can plot a map for a contractor that shows the roads to be repaired in red and roads to be inspected in blue. You can alter the width of the polylines to show road widths. You can also add text to identify elements of your drawing.

Property alteration involves the following three general steps:

AutoCAD Map 3D performs the query, applies the property alteration definition to the queried objects, and displays the modified objects in the current drawing.
