The active multi-line definition is set in the Multi-line Styles dialog.
|Place 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.|
|Multi-line Styles icon||Opens the Multi-line Styles dialog which is used to create and modify multi-line styles.|
|Length||If on, sets segment length, in working units.|
|(Active) Angle||If on, constrains the multi-line to the Active Angle, which can be keyed in here as well.|
|Style Scale||If on, the offset distances for the component lines are scaled by the amount shown.|
|Place By|| 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.
|Association||If on, and Snap Lock is on, any vertex in a multi-line can be associated to another element by snapping to that element.|
|Close Element||Connects the first point of the multi-line with the last point of the multi-line.|
