Subject: Using dynamic visual styles for hiding, shading, and rendering

Visual styles can change the display of a drawing in real-time as you draw and edit a drawing. As you work, you can also add materials to entities, lighting to the scene, and a background to the current view, all of which display with visual styles that support rendering, such as Realistic and Shaded.
