Subject: Modifying the properties of multiple entities

You can modify all the properties of all selected entities simultaneously. For exam­ple, using the entprop command, select all entities on a particular layer, and then move the entities to another layer by simply selecting a name from the Layer text box. Additionally, using the select command and the Select by Properties option, select all blue entities and change their color to green.

In the Properties pane, changes that you make in the Layer, Color, Thickness, Line­weight, Linetype, Linetype Scale, and Print Style (if using named print style tables) fields affect all selected entities. To change the properties of a single entity in the selection set, choose the entity from the list at the top of the Properties pane.

You can select the entities to be changed using any entity-selection method.
