Apply a Favorite

Apply a stored Favorite to selected element(s), or apply it as default Tool settings (if nothing is selected).

Favorites can be applied from three different locations, each shown below:

Favorites Chooser in the Toolbox or Info Box

Favorites Palette (Window > Palettes > Favorites)

Tool Settings Dialog box

For information on Favorites controls in Library Part tool dialog boxes, see Settings of Library Part Elements.

In every case, select the Favorite, then double-click to apply to a selected element.

Or select a Favorite and click Apply (button or context menu).

Text-type Tools

Text tool Favorites can be applied to any text-type items when Dimensions, Labels, and Fills with Area Text are selected.

Line-Type Tools

Favorites of any of the four Line-type tools (Line, Arc, Polyline, Spline) can be applied to any of the other Line-type elements. For example, apply a Line Tool Favorite to a selected Arc.
