Use Active Attributes
When using the Change Element Attributes tool, you'll notice that there is an option to Use Active Attributes. When this is turned on, the active attribute settings are connected to the tool settings box. In other words, if the tool settings change, then so do the active attributes and vice versa.
However, if the option is turned off, then changes to the tool settings will not impact your active attributes and vice versa.
