Line Format

You can specify the color, thickness, and style in drawings for:
  • Formats for new sketch entities
  • Entities in layers
  • Properties of existing edges and sketch entities

You can specify the color for notes and other annotations in either layers or with the Line Color tool.

The settings for the line formats are either:
  • globally controlled - set in layers
  • explicitly controlled - set by the Line Format tools

When you add new sketch entities to a drawing, the line format follows the Layer settings. If no layer is active, the line format follows the system settings.

For new sketch entities and annotations, the line format tool settings override layer specifications and system settings. Another method of setting edge properties for assembly components in drawings is with Component Line Font.
