Can Objects ignore graphical overwrites

Joachim Suehlo
Advisor

Is it possible that GDL Objects can ignore grafical overwrites?
Example: I want to overwrite all my furniture in the Electrical installation plan with no fill and grey contour pen. I do not want to overwrite the electrical symbols that are also GDL objects.

Maybe modify your Graphic Override Rule criteria so they will not apply to you desired Library Parts.

For example, you can create a Property, set this Property to a certain value for these Library part instances, and then specify your Graphic Override Rule criteria in a way that it does not override elements that have that Property with that specific value.
