Style Tools Palette
The Style Tools palette brings the concept of style sheets to drawing, thus you can store in these tools your settings for normal lines, centerlines, hidden lines, etc. They operate like the Needle tool in that they allow you to assign the attributes (pen size, pattern and color, fill pattern and color, arrows, etc.) to objects with a single click.
There are twelve tools, all of which operate the same way on objects. Some of the tool icons have colors. These colors are not related to the attributes of the tool. Instead, they're used to identify the line weight, like the color of a cap on a drafting pen.
To use a Style tool, select one of the tools from the Style Tools palette. Each tool remembers its setting between open/quit sessions, thus it is ready to assign attributes immediately.
To change any object in the drawing to the attributes of this tool, simply click on the object with the Needle cursor. This sets all of the attributes of the object. If you get an undesired effect, you may always choose Undo from the Edit menu.
