Can some please explain why or how you uses the following in element templates
Levels you can have a primary level which seems to be the level the template will take when it is used, yet you can added multiply levels below this which dont seem to have any function at all.
This also seem to apply to all the attributes within the templates including colour fill, hatching etc

We use the template levels to designate different states of different sitework line styles. For example, a template for Storm Drain - level 0 for existing; level 1 for proposed and level 2 for abandoned - one template containing 3 different line styles, weights, etc.
The orignal poster Mark stated and I quote "fill and shape all applied to different levels"
I must not be understanding this but as far as I can tell templates may offer you multiple options but it cannot create
a shape or polygon that the fill and out line are on different levels to eachother..

Unknown said:If there are multiple instances of the same property and you do not want to use the default property, before drawing the element use the appropriate toolboxes to select “secondary” properties that match those in the template.
It would be noted that there is no any dependency or linkage between active template and a selection of parameters implemented, so if multiple properties are defined in the template definition, it's not indicated anywhere and user is not aware of it. In my opinion it makes the whole concept of multiple elements pretty ineffective and hardly usable. The only tool which accepts and works with multiple properties is Standard Checker.

Unknown said:I don't quite understand your explanation of how to select a different property in the element template.
As far as I know there is no such option. If there are e.g. 4 color defined in a template, still full color table is available ... which consequently means it's easy to select a color that doesn't conform to the template. But I am also curious if some trick exists.
