Plant tag text color

Recommended Posts

Where is control for color of text and the tag line/shoulder?  2d plant outline color & fill can be edited via Resource Browser symbol edit.  But I can't find controls for the text color or the line color.


Elements can be edited if ungroup the symbol after it's placed on the drawing. But, then it's just a bunch of dumb geometry, not a plant symbol/smart object.

The tags are not stored as part of the plant style. They are generated by instance based on the settings in the Plant Tool Preferences.

Click the Plant Tool Preferences and assign a class to the tags that is separate to the main plant class.

Edit the chosen class to have the desired lineweight, colour, text style, and ensure it set to Use at Creation.

Click OK.

The tags will adopt the properties of the class.
