The following procedure steps you through creating a marine mode rule set view style with the Tools > Define View Style command.

  1. Select Tools > Define View Style. The Define View Style dialog box displays.

  2. In the View Style Type box, select the Ruleset view style type.

  3. Click New Style to create a new rule set view style. Click Rename to change the name of the new style.

  4. Select the new rule set view style, and click Properties to open the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box.

  5. On the Name tab, specify a name and description for the new rule set view style.

  6. On the Actions tab, select the rule set you want to use in creating this view style definition. The rule set determines the actions and options available for the rule set view style and populates the Actions table.

  7. In the Actions table, define the Source/Action combinations you want to include in this rule set view style. Each source shows an action to be performed. You can add a new action from the list of Source items. You can add more than one action belonging to the same source. For example, a Plate Part source could have several different actions assigned on multiple rows in the table.

  8. For each row, set the needed Filter and Custom tests that the rule set view style runs to identify the objects included in the drawing.

  9. If you want to include an add-on rule set view style as part of your primary view style, go to the AddOn tab to import the add-on style.

  10. For each row, set the needed Graphic, Label, and Dimension rules applied to the drawing output.

    You can use symbols as part of the rule set view style for drawings by rule. The symbols can display as part of the drawing view, enhancing graphic objects. You can also place symbols on a drawing as a label in paper space.

  11. On the Query tab, set the query to use. When you select a query, the Value field updates. You can modify the value as needed.

  12. On the Area tab, specify how the drawing area is computed for the view.

  13. Click OK on the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box to save the changes to the new rule set view style.

  14. Test your view style by creating drawings. You can edit the view styleas needed with Tools > Define View Style.
