1. Open the drawing named Applying Section Styles.dwg located in the Chapter 11 class data folder.

Here, you see three section views that were plotted to investigate the shallow rock layer. The section views show a corridor section, existing ground surface section, and rock section.

2. Click the lowest section in the 8+50.00 (0+260.00) section view, and then click Section Properties on the Section: Rock ribbon tab.

3. On the Information tab of the Section Properties dialog box, change Object Style to Rock. Click OK to close the dialog box. Press Esc to clear the selection.

The rock section now appears as a gray dashed line.

4. Repeat the previous two steps for the section that appears above the rock layer, this time assigning a style of Existing Ground.

The section representing existing ground now appears as a red dashed line along with the rock section from the previous step (see Figure 11.1).

5. Click the lower section in the 9+00.00 (0+270.00) section view, right-click, and select Properties.

6. In the Properties window, change Style to Rock. Keep the Properties window open.

7. Press Esc to clear the selection of the rock section. Click the existing ground section, and use the Properties window to change its style to Existing Ground.

8. Press Esc to clear the previous selection, and then click one of the grid lines for the 9+25.00 (0+280.00) section view. Click Section View Properties on the ribbon.

9. On the Sections tab of the Section View Properties dialog box, in the Style column, change the style of the section named EG to Existing Ground, and for the section named Rock, change the style to Rock. Click OK to dismiss the Section View Properties dialog box. Press Esc to clear the selection.

All three section views should now properly display the existing ground and rock sections.

10. Save and close the drawing.
