The 'Settings' form allows you to make adjustments that change the presentation style of the 2D layout drawing created by Linear Draft. The changes made here will only effect the structure you have selected. It means that the presentation style of the 2D overhead line drawings file can be altered and configured to suit.
Select the ‘Structure Adjust’ button from the Linear Draft toolbar and follow the prompt to select a structure.
Once you have chosen a structure, the 'Edit Structure' form will be displayed.
The 'Settings' form will now be displayed. A full description of each section can be found below.
