Open the view in which you want to override the graphic display of element categories.
Right-click an element in the drawing area, and click Override Graphics in ViewBy Category. When you use this method, the element’s category is already highlighted when the Visibility/Graphics dialog opens.
Alternatively, you can click Manage tabGraphics panel (Visibility/Graphics).
NoteIf you open the Visibility/Graphics dialog from a drafting view, only those categories that can appear in a drafting view display.
If necessary, click the appropriate tab in the Visibility/Graphics dialog (Model Categories, Annotation Categories, or Imported Categories).
Highlight a category row.
Click the Override button for the line or pattern to edit.
NoteFor annotation and imported categories, you can only override projection and surface display.
For lines, edit the line weight, line color, and line pattern. For patterns, edit the fill color and fill pattern.
(Optional) Select the Halftone check box next to a category to blend the line color of an element with the background color of the view. This produces a lighter shade for the line color. (See Halftone/Underlay.)
For model categories, you can also select a detail level at which to display the element category.
The detail level of the category overrides the detail level of the view. For example, you can set a wall to display at medium or fine detail level to see its structure, even if the view detail level is set to coarse.
You cannot set the detail level for subcategories. They inherit it from their parent category.
Click Apply to view your changes, and click OK to exit the Visibility/Graphics dialog.
