The Style Manager window allows the user to modify display settings that are applied to classes of objects.

 

Line Styles

 

This is the collection of available line styles. Use the duplicate or delete buttons to clone or remove line styles, respectively.

 

Color:The color each line is drawn with.

 

Opacity:The opacity of the information drawn for each line.

 

Weight:The thickness of the lines being drawn, measured in pixels.

 

Style:The "style" of the line being drawn: solid, dashed, dotted and so forth.

 

Point Styles

 

This is the collection of available point styles. Use the duplicate or delete buttons to clone or remove point styles, respectively.

 

Color:The color each point is drawn with.

 

Opacity:The opacity of the information drawn at each point.

 

Size:The size of the symbol to draw at each point, measured in pixels. For example, if each point was drawn as a filled circle, its diameter would be equal to this size.

 

Weight:The thickness of any lines drawn for the symbol, measured in pixels. For example, if each point was drawn as a circle outline, its diameter would be equal to the size (above) but the line thickness would be equal to the weight.

 

Symbol:The symbol to use for drawing points. Note that this point symbol is independent of any symbols used to indicate object selection.

 

Contour Styles

 

This is the collection of available contour styles. Use the duplicate or delete buttons to clone or remove contour styles, respectively.

Use Color Map:Set each contour line to a color matching the chosen color map. It has no effect if contour lines are hidden.

 

Weight, Color, Style:These options control the display of contour lines - specifically, the line weight or width, color, and style (such as solid or dashed). These have no effect if contour lines are hidden. The color option can be overridden by the Use Color Map option above.

 

Color Map:The color map to use for contouring.

 

Reverse Color Map:Whether or not to invert the color map.

 

Gradient:Whether or not to use a full color gradient, instead of discrete color values.
