Attributes Toolbox

The Attributes toolbox contains controls for setting the active element attributes. By default it is docked to the top of the application window (directly beneath the menu bar).

All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.

Note: If you are operating in DWG workmode, line styles 1–7 are disabled because they have no dimension — that is they do not change when you zoom in or out. These line styles are not valid in AutoCAD. Only custom line styles are enabled in this workmode.
Note: If you are operating in DWG workmode, you cannot load a color table. The AutoCAD color table is the only color table loaded.
Tip: The Active Color, Active Line Style, and/or Active Line Weight can be set to match the attributes of an element with the Match Element Attributes tool.
Note: To change an element's attributes to the active attribute settings, use the Change Element Attributes tool.
