Active Element Class

Sets the Active Class of elements on placement.

By convention, elements with the class attribute of Construction are used as drawing aids. For example, you might place a construction element in a particular location as an element to “snap” other elements to, but you would not plot the construction element when the DGN file is complete. The elements that are actually part of the DGN file usually have the class attribute of Primary.

Note: This control is hidden by default. To make it appear in the Attributes group, right-click the Attributes group and turn on Element Class.
