Changing the size and appearance of point objects

Changing the size and appearance of point objects affects all point objects already in the drawing, as well as all points that you subsequently draw. Positive values represent the absolute size of the point object measured in drawing units. Negative values represent a percentage relative to the drawing screen, so that points retain their visual size as you use the Zoom command to change the magnification of the drawing.

To change the size and appearance of point objects

  1. Choose Format > Point Style.

  2. Under Point Style, select the style you want.

  3. Under Point Size, select the point size, or choose one of the options.

  4. Click OK.

Command line DDPTYPE

When you regenerate the drawing, all point objects change to reflect the new size and appearance settings.
