AutoCAD Match Properties Settings

Many of AutoCAD users already know that we can match object properties using MATCHPROP (or MA for short key in). This tool is very handy for you who wants to change an object properties to copy other object’s.

But many of us don’t realize that there are some settings that we can use in this tool. It allows us to use this tool to match only a specific property. So you don’t have to use separate tool like LAYERMCH to match only layer.
Let’s say you want to copy an object line style. But you don’t want to copy it’s color, layer, and any other properties.
Let’s try to activate this tool. Type MA then hit [enter].

You can also use activate this tool from AutoCAD ribbon> home tab> clipboard panel.
