Attribute Manager

Open the Attribute Manager from Options > Element Attributes > Attribute Manager.
This dialog box allows you to copy (append, overwrite) attributes (Layers, Layer Combinations, Pens & Colors, Pen Sets, Line Types, Fill Types, Composite Structures, Profiles, Surfaces, Building Materials, Zone Categories, Cities and Operation Profiles) between two opened files. It can also duplicate or delete attributes in either of the two files.
Note: If you have installed MEP Modeler, the MEP Systems tab page appears too.
– Append: Adds the attribute to the list of the other file, with a new index number.
– By Index: Overwrites the attribute in the other file that has the same index number.
By Name: Overwrites the attribute in the other file that has the same name.
For the Building Material attribute (which includes Cut Fill and Surface attributes), checkboxes are available to include or exclude the Building Material’s Cut Fill and/or Surface definitions.
Layer Combinations can include associated Layers
Composites and Profiles can include associated Line Types, Fills, Surfaces, Building Materials
Surfaces can include associated Vectorial Fills
Purge Unused: You have the option of purging the unused attributes from your project: click Purge Unused from the bottom of the current project’s attribute list. Those attributes used in default element settings will not be purged. Note, however, that an attribute shown here as unused (it is listed without a checkmark) may in fact be referred by the GDL script of a placed object.
The Revert button restores the attributes to their previous state. (The Cancel button has the same effect, but also closes the dialog box.)
The Apply button applies the changes you have made without closing the dialog box.
Layers: You can modify the visibility and locking state as well as the name of the selected layer.
Layer Combinations: You can rename the selected layer combination.
Pen Tables: You can copy, delete, append or overwrite pen tables among the selected projects.
Pens & Colors: You can modify the color, the RGB components and the line width of the selected pen.
Line Types: You can modify the name and the scale factor of the selected line type.
Fill Types: You can modify the name of the selected item as well as its availability for the various fill categories.
Composite Structures: You can modify the name of the selected item as well as its availability for different element types.
Profiles: You can modify the name of the selected profile as well as its availability for different element types.
Surfaces: You can modify the color, name and texture assignment of the selected surface.
Building Materials: You can modify the name, cut fill, surface and intersection priority.
Zone Categories: You can modify the code, color, name and zone stamp assignment of the selected item.
Cities: You can modify the name, latitude and longitude values and time zone settings of the selected location.
MEP Systems: These attributes are available only if you have installed the MEP Modeler program.
See the MEP Modeler User Guide for more information on this add-on.
Operation Profiles: These attributes are created with the Energy Evaluation function.
All: You can display all the attribute types of the current project and sort them by types, numbers and names, or edit the attribute that is selected in the list.
