Identify a specific unknown style in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Did you know you can identify a specific unknown style as long as it is currently used in your AutoCAD Civil 3D DWG file?

For example, it is inefficient to search through 40 styles to locate a style you can see in your drawing. Or you might have to guess, or worse, create a new style due to unfamiliarity. Here's what you do:

  1. Go to your labels and choose Pick from Drawing.
  2. This will automatically switch your label style to the current style selected from your drawing.

For a better reference, it works like your Make Object's Layer Current feature, except it's for styles.

Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: This is a good tip when working with Civil 3D styles. It should also be noted that Match Properties works on some but not all Civil 3D styles. Either way is much easier than having to figure out the name of a style, then searching through a long list to find it. Thanks, Craig!
