What is the difference between Property Defaults in ArtiosCAD Defaults and in Design Edit menu?

  • ArtiosCAD has Property Defaults in Design Edit menu:

    This allows the user to modify Property Defaults to be something different than what is specified in Defaults for the current design. When the design is saved, Property Defaults will also be saved in the design file. When user restores saved design, Property Defaults data get restored from design file too.
