Open the Attribute Manager from Options > Element Attributes > Attribute Manager.
Displaying the dialog box might take some time, since it has to list all the attributes of the project.
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.
On top of the dialog box, the attribute types’ icons represent tab pages that display one type of attribute at a time. The last tab shows all types of attributes in a single list.
On the left, the attributes of the currently opened ARCHICAD file are shown by their index number and name.
On the right you can either open a second ARCHICAD file (Project, Archive or Module) or an attribute file in a special format that belongs to Attribute Manager. (Use the “Open” command at the bottom right of the dialog box.)
Here, the Fill attributes of two projects are shown. For the current project (whose attributes are listed on the left side), a checkmark means that the attribute is used in the project.
Use the buttons in the middle of the dialog box to manage the attributes between the two files.
•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
On the Pen Set page of Attribute Manager:
•Use the Save as STB button to save any single selected pen set in the format of AutoCAD Plot Style Table (*.stb). The Plot Style Table is used by AutoCAD to map each color in your drawing to line widths on printed/plotted output.
•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.
To sort an attribute list by a particular criterion, click the top of the desired column. For example, you can display pens by line width or cities by latitude.
In the row below the list of the current project attributes, you can edit individual attribute names and some of their properties. For example, for fill attributes you can define its type as Drafting, Cover and/or a Cut Fill.
