Global Attributes Setup

Many KeyCreator functions use a common Attributes dialog box/tab. These functions include:

  • Edit Entities

  • Features

  • Fasteners

  • Structural Shapes

  • Section Views

Every Fastener, Feature, and Structural Shapes dialog contains an Attributes tab. The settings on this tab are identical for all types of geometry.

Dialog Options:

To activate and section of this dialog, select the appropriate checkbox. The options associated with that checkbox will then become active. Greyed-out, the default or current system settings (e.g., active level) will be used for the geometry.
