When adding a new map layer to your project a default symbol will be automatically generated. AccuGlobe will select a random color scheme and pick a pen and fill style appropriate to the geometry type of the data to be used for display purposes.
Steps For Changing The Default Symbology
- Right-click on the layer in the legend. A new menu will popup.
- Click on Layer Properties. The Layer Properties dialog will be displayed.
- Click on the Main Symbol tab.
- Changes made under the Main Symbol section will become the new default symbology.
Selected symbology is used to render a feature that has been selected. By making this symbol different from the main default symbol it is easy to see which features on the map are selected.
