Changing an Element's Template Association
An element can be associated with, or "locked" to, an element template. You can associate an element with a template before drawing the element. You can also associate an element with a template after the element has been placed. When an element is associated with a template, its properties match those specified in the template. When properties in the template change, the elements associated with the template can be resymbolized.
The following procedures show you how to use the Properties dialog to find out if an element is associated with template, associate an element with a template, and change an element's template association.
