Creating simple entities - Creating point entities

Changing the size and appearance of point entities

Changing the size and appearance of point entities affects all point entities already in the drawing, as well as all points that you subsequently draw. Positive values represent the absolute size of the point entity measured in drawing units. Negative values represent a percentage relative to the drawing screen, so that points retain their visual size as you use the Zoom command to change the magnification of the drawing.

To change the size and appearance of point entities
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Drawing Settings.
  3. Type settings and then press Enter.
  4. Click the Entity Creation tab.
  5. Under Change Settings For, click Points.
  6. Under Point Display Type, select the style you want.
  7. Under Point Size, select the point size, or choose one of the options.
  8. Click OK.
  9. When you regenerate the drawing, all point entities change to reflect the new size and appearance settings.
  1. To increase or decrease the point size, type a value or click one of the point size arrows.
  2. To use one of the preset point size options, click the one that you want.
  1. Select the button for the Point Display Type that you want.
