Properties Palette

Properties Palette

Win32 and 64, English

New property NAME for all objects in the drawing. The size of any solids. The density and price of materials. Edge banding and surface covers. Editing a block name. Quick attribute creation.

General Usage Instructions

The panel (Palette) opens and closes with the AvcPalette command. In order to avoid pauses when selecting objects, it is recommended to close the palette when it is not needed. Data is loaded into the palette as soon as you select something in the drawing (before calling the commands). If you select many objects at once, then the A>V>C> properties palette does not work like a regular property panel. A separate tab opens for each type of object. And objects whose editing is not provided are ignored.
Tabs available:
  • Name - for lines and curves. Allows only editing the name and descriptions.
  • Solid - for solids which are not yet been measured in any A>V>C> commands. Allows you to edit additional properties of the solid: Mirror, Sweep and Texture.
  • Metric - for measured solid. In this, there are most of all properties and you can change the materials of edges and covers.
  • Face - selected solid surface.
  • Block - for convenient editing of the name and description of blocks, editing of constant attributes. In the standard properties panel, block properties are not available at all - only block reference properties.
  • Reference - block insertion or block reference. To edit block attributes and block parameters. As you know, a block can be inserted into a drawing many times. Each time a reference is created that describes where to show the block and how to rotate it. And each reference has its own set of mutable attributes. I preferred to place the properties of the block reference separately from the properties of the block, on different tabs.
  • Assembly - block assembly. For future use.
  • Product - block-product. For future use.
  • Detail - solid-Detail. For future use.
  • Leader - shows a Leader style and Smart Leader template.
  • Table - drawing table properties.
  • Text - single-line test (DBText) or multi-lite text (MText) properties.
  • Dimension - any type of dimension properties.
  • Material - properties of the material from which the part is made, density, price.
  • Cover - properties of the coating material on the faces of parts. Paint, film, laminate, banding.
  • Drawing - properties of the DWG drawing file. Standard and custom. You can add new properties to the drawing.
  • Entity - all other drawing objects.
The title shows the identifier of the object or the number of selected objects. The identifier is the same as you can see in the code of the fields; it is displayed by the SolSize and Smart Leader commands.

Additional Information

Properties Editor (Palette) in Autodesk® AutoCAD® is not adapted to enter long texts. You will see only the first words and will not be able to edit multi-line text, etc. 

For the convenience of entering long names and descriptions I made 3 separate panels (palettes) with built-in multi-line text editor, NAME palette, TYPE palette and INFO palette. Panels can be docked to the edges of the AutoCAD window, but I recommend using a second monitor for them. 

Info editor is different in that it is not blocked with new-line and tab. Open and close the palettes to the appropriate commands. Palettes will show data as soon as you select something in the drawing. The changes are saved when the selection is cancelled (Esc, the beginning of a new command, switching documents).
