You can use the Style Manager dialog box to create new symbols or to modify an existing symbol.
To set or modify properties of an element or symbol in a style, double-click it in the contents window of Style Manager. This opens a property dialog box and allows you to define the appearance of the element or symbol and save changes within the style.
Since symbols and elements are organized by type, you create a new symbol or element by first identifying the type, then by choosing the appropriate folder. Then, when you choose to create a new symbol or element, the properties you can choose from are only associated with that symbol or element type.
Layers appear in the list according to when they are drawn. Therefore, the bottom layer will be covered by the layer listed above it.
By adding or working with layers, you can enhance the symbols that already exist or combine them to make new symbols. The layers you use can be a mixture of different symbol types and properties, such as color, width, and offset. Turning on or off a layer affects which layers will be viewed in the preview. Locking and unlocking a layer does not affect your capabilities in the Symbol Property Editor dialog box; however, it does affect the ability to change the color in the Symbol Selector you access through the Layer Properties dialog box. If you change the symbol color there, only the unlocked layers will change to the new color.
