Specifies a rule set, source objects, and actions to use for the marine mode view style. After you select the rule set, you set the style actions for each source in the Action table by identifying tests that specify the objects called by the view and rules that specify how graphics, labels, and dimensions are displayed within the view.

Select Ruleset

Provides a list of rule sets for this view style. Select a rule set from the list to populate the Action table. For more information, see Drawings by Rule View Style Rule Sets.

Render Mode

Specifies whether the software generates the raster image of the 3D objects as part of the generated 2D drawing.

  • Vector Only - The software creates a wireframe representation of objects in the 2D drawing. Raster Settings is unavailable for this render mode.

  • Vector + Raster - The software creates both the 3D object representation and the wireframe representation in the 2D drawing. Raster Settings is available for this render mode.

    Modify the individual Graphic Rule to specify the raster color for the rendered image. For more information, see Select Graphic Rule Dialog Box and Graphic Rules.

Raster Settings

Displays the Raster Settings dialog box, where you specify resolution and background color for the rendered image. Raster Settings is available only when Render Mode is set to Vector + Raster. For more information, see Raster Settings Dialog Box.

Edit action description for selected row

Specifies the tooltip that is visible when the cursor hovers over the number of an action row. Select a row, and click Edit action description for selected row to display the Edit Action Description dialog box. For more information, see Edit Action Description Dialog Box.

Source

Specifies an object type that receives action after extraction by the rule set view style query. Each row of the grid represents a source object type. Each column in the grid represents an action, or operation, to be performed on the source. You can add a new row from the list of Source items. You can add more than one row belonging to the same source item.

  • The available options for Source are defined by the selected rule set.

  • Select Object Type - This option is available for view styles using asking filters, or when you need to select an object type that is not defined by the selected rule set. Any object type can be selected in the Select Object Types dialog box.

Tests

There are two types of tests you can apply to specify the objects against which the actions run.

Filter

Specifies a filter to use in specifying objects. Select More to display the Select Filter dialog box. For more information, see Select Filter Dialog Box.

Custom

Specifies a list of custom tests available for the selected rule set. Select Edit in to display the Custom Tests dialog, and make any needed changes to the test you need for the current action. For more information, see Custom Tests Dialog Box and Custom Tests Dialog Box (Generic Rule Set).

Rules

Graphic

Specifies the graphic rule used for the current action. For each object processed by the rule set view style, the software applies the first action that passes the specified Tests and has a graphic rule specified. The software does not draw the graphic produced by the action unless you select Custom or From ruleset. The From ruleset option tells the software to use the symbols, colors, and line styles specified by the selected rule set. The Custom option tells the software to use a custom graphic rule you provide. You can also use the Edit Custom option to display the Graphic Style dialog box and edit the graphic definition as needed. For more information, see Graphic Style Dialog Box.

Label

Specifies the label rule used for the current action. For each object processed by the rule set view style, the software applies the labels from all the actions that pass the applied tests. More than one label can be added to an object. Select More to display the Select Label dialog box. For more information, see Label Rules in Drawings by Rule.

Dimension

Specifies the dimension rule used for the current action. For each object processed by the rule set view style, the software applies the dimensions from all the actions that pass the applied tests. More than one dimension can be added to an object. Select More to display the Select Dimension dialog box. For more information, see Marine Dimension Rules.
