What is the difference between an Override and a Child Override?
Why do some sections have Override Check Boxes but no Child Override Arrows, and vice versa?
What happens when you click a Green Check Mark in the box?
What happens when you click a Red "X" on the arrow?
Solved! Go to Solution.
So the green check means that decimal is an override to the value set at the dwg level.
The x in the child override means that you want all point styles to use the point style benchmark.
If you "accept" this then the override will stick for the green check and the check will remain to indicate that it overrides a setting further out (parent) and the arrow (and red x) will dissappear as it will force all styles further in (children) to use benchmark.
this is a way to modify child settings of the parent setting globally because sometimes there are a lot of children involved. LOL
DRAWING Level (THE BIG DADDY-PARENT)
POINT (CHILD OF DWG and PARENT OF LABEL STYLES)
LABEL STYLES (CHILD OF POINT and PARENT OF INDIVIDUALLY DEFINED LABEL STYLES)
DESCRIPTION ONLY (JUST A CHILD)
To further muddy the water.
If you click on the lock icon at any parent or child spot
You will not be able to modify that setting for any child instances (inwardly) from the place where you used the lock.
OK, so there can be both Overrides and Child Overrides for any property in the Feature Settings Table. That gets me a little closer. I like your "Big Daddy Parent" hierarchical explanation. Thanks for your help.
The lock makes sense now, too.
