AutoCAD Match Properties Settings

Every AutoCAD user should know about the MATCHPROP (MA for short key in) tool.

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.


Select source object:
Current active settings:  Ltype Ltscale Dim Text Hatch Polyline Viewport Table
Material Shadow display Multileader
Select destination object(s) or [Settings]:
After you activate the tool, pay attention that there is an option to choose settings in AutoCAD command line. Type S then hit [enter].
You will see property settings dialog box.
Uncheck anything that you don’t want to change. Click OK. Now you can copy selective properties to your AutoCAD objects!
