[Video] 4 Questions about Developing Styles in Civil 3D
In Civil 3D, “styles control the appearance of drawing objects, labels, and tables. Different styles can be created to represent objects at different approval stages, or to display the right information for different types of users.”
Developing styles will be the focus of our next Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on April 3rd. In this video, I’m going to give you a little bit of an insight into what we’ll specifically be covering in the webinar.
In addition to some of my general tips & tricks for setting up Civil 3D styles, we’ll answer the following questions:
- How do I navigate the Settings tab to create styles?
- How do I “borrow” styles from one drawing and bring them into another without having to go through the Wizard?
- How do I filter default settings through All Styles?
- How can I take styles and make new ones quickly and easily?
Join me at the Infrastructure Tuesday webinar on April 3rd for the answers!
