Change Multi-line

Used to change a multi-line's attributes to the active multi-line definition, which can be set in the Multi-line Styles dialog.

You can access this tool from the following:
  • Ribbon: Drawing > Home > Multi-lines
  • Toolbox: Multi-lines

Adjust Offset by Then the work line is Illustration
Work Line At offset position 0,0 as defined in the active multi-line definition (in the illustrations, the position of the dashed line).

Center Adjusted to be midway between the outermost component lines. If there is a component line at the center, the work line is superimposed on it.

Maximum Adjusted to be superimposed on the component line with the maximum Offset.

Minimum Adjusted to be superimposed on the component line with the minimum Offset.

In the table, the illustrations for Maximum and Minimum show the pointer when drawing from left to right. Thus, the top component line has a positive Offset, and the bottom two component lines have negative Offsets.

Style Sets the current multi-line style from a list of all available multi-line styles.
Adjust Offset Sets the work line's position in the multi-line when placed and how the component lines are offset (see table above). The work line's position can be changed between placements of individual segments. Placing a multi-line in this manner, however, prevents you from using Association to associate vertices with other elements.

If the Match Element Attributes tool is used to make the active multi-line definition match that of the multi-line in the design, the work line is assigned the offset 0,0.

Adjust End Cap Angle If on, it adjusts the angle of the end cap according to the angle settings of activated style in multi-line styles dialog after changing the current selected multi-line style.
Style Scale If on, the offset distances for the component lines are scaled by the amount shown.
Tip: The active multi-line definition can be set to match a multi-line element with the Match All Element Settings (SmartMatch) tool.
