“Building the Foundation of the Design.” The dialog displays the
options that are available for modifying layers in the space on the
right. A small pencil icon appears next to the Hidden (ANSI) layer,
showing that it's active for editing. Let's make some modifi cations to

24. Use the same process to change the color of the Hidden Narrow

25. Change the Center Mark (ANSI) and Centerline (ANSI) layers to
green, the Dimension (ANSI) layer to blue, and the Hatch layer to
orange. See Figure 4.27 as a reference.
26. Save the changes, and click Done to close the dialog box.
