About Using Named Plot Styles

About Using Named Plot Styles

Named plot styles are assigned to objects and layers in the same way that linetype
and color are assigned to objects.

An object whose plot style is set to BYLAYER inherits the plot style assigned to
its layer.

Use the Properties palette to change an object’s plot style and the Layer Properties
Manager to change the plot style for a layer.

Because different plot style tables can be assigned to each layout and a named plot
style table can contain any number of plot styles, an object or layer may have a plot
style assigned to it that is not in every plot style table. In this case, the plot
style is missing in the Select Plot Style dialog box; the object’s default plotting
properties are used. For example, named plot style table Style1 contains plot styles
A and B. Named plot style table Style2 contains plot styles B and C. In a layout that
uses Style1, any objects that use plot style C are listed as having a missing plot
style. Objects that are assigned plot style C in this layout are plotted using their
default settings.
