|Introduced in version|
The Draft Layer creates a special kind of group that controls the visual properties of objects placed inside of it. By changing the properties of the Layer, such as line width, line color, shape color and transparency, the changes are propagated to the objects that make use of the Layer property.
This tool replaces Draft VisGroup starting from FreeCAD 0.19.
- DataGroup: specifies the elements that are part of the group.
- Visual properties that can be changed that are propagated to the objects: ViewDrawing Style, ViewLine Color, ViewLine Width, ViewShape Color, ViewTransparency, and ViewVisibility.
