Setting a layer's print style
If your drawing uses named print style tables, you can specify a print style for each layer. Named print style tables contain print styles that you set up to control what entities look like when they print, without actually changing the entities in the drawing.
If your drawing uses color-dependent print style tables, you cannot specify a print style for a layer. These types of print style tables automatically determine printing requirements by the color assigned to a layer or an entity.
In drawings that use named print style tables, the default print style is Normal for all new layers. If desired, you can assign a print style using progeCAD Explorer. Changing the print style assigned to a layer changes the print style of all entities drawn on that layer with the BYLAYER print style.
When you create new entities, it’s a good idea to assign the BYLAYER print style to any entities that you draw on that layer, unless you want to override the layer print style. progeCAD uses the BYLAYER print style as the default print style setting when you create entities (in the Drawing Settings dialog box).
To change the print style assigned to one or more layers (only in a drawing that uses named print style tables)
NOTE For drawings that use named print style tables, you can also assign a specific print style to an entity, which overrides the layer’s print style setting. When you create a new entity, use the Settings > Drawing Settings > Entity Creation tab to change the current print style. For an existing entity, select the entity, right-click for the shortcut menu, and choose Properties. You can then modify the entity’s print style in the Entity Properties dialog box.
