    1. Select Format > Style to display the Style dialog.

  5. In the Line Style Editor, expand the Linear Styles node.

  6. Right-click the heat trace line style that you want to modify (for example, Electric Heat Trace) and select Import Style on the shortcut menu.

    The line style name becomes bold, indicating that it has been imported into the symbol.
