Learn to make as well as import styles through Style Manager in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD MEP

Issue: There is no option for applying style in a file. But one can make his own styles or import available styles from another file. To perform this, apply the following tricks:-

Solution:

 1. To tailor styles on the basis of the Standard styles:-

  •          Click on the style manager to open it.
  •          Broaden a Style Category (eg. Wall Styles).
  •          Opt for the Standard style in the category.
  •          To replicate the standard style, apply the Copy and Paste buttons situated in the tool                  bar.
  •           Underneath the original style, there will be a Standard (2) style.
  •           Change the name of the style.
  •          Modify the properties of the style with the tabs located at the right. The tabs range                      from General, Design Rules, Overrides, Materials, Classifications, Displa Properties, and            Version History.

2. To import aceessible styles from another drawing file:

 

  •       Click and open the Style Manager (STYLEMANAGER).
  •      Navigate and open the file that contains the existing styles through the Open menu in the        tool bar.
  •      The drawing and its styles will be visible in the file tree underneath the existing drawing.
  •       Extend a Style Category (eg. Wall Styles).
  •       In the existing drawing, drag and drop specific styles into the related category or drag               and    drop the full category to copy all styles.

 

The default location for the Imperial Architecture can be found below:-

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ACA 201x\enu\Styles\Imperial

 

The default location for the Imperial MEP content can be found below:-

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\MEP 201x\enu\Styles\Imperial

 

For metric or other local content, choose the exact folder within the Styles folder.

 

Keep in mind that this folder is hidden and in order to get the files inside the hidden folder, activate Windows Explorer.

 

3. If no style prevails in a category:

 

  •          Right-click on the category (eg. Wall Styles).
  •          Click on “New” to create a new style.
  •          Modify the properties of the style with the tabs located at the right.
