Lists the available graphic rules. You can open this dialog box by clicking More in the Graphic Rule box on the View Style Properties dialog box.

Graphic Rule Type

Specifies a type of graphic rule. The rule types available include the following:

  • Visible/Hidden Lines (VHL) - Creates a wireframe representation of objects, where just the outline of the object is drawn.

  • Replace Objects with Line - Replaces objects, such as pipes, with lines.

  • Replace Objects with Line and Widget - Replaces objects, such as structural members, with a line plus widget combination.

  • Replace Objects with Symbol - Replaces objects with symbols.

If the replacing symbol only contains a text box element, label leaders may become detached from the symbol. To avoid this problem, we recommend adding a point element at the origin of the symbol.
