Update drawing with the current value of a specific drawing option during drawing retrieval

Update drawing with the current value of a specific drawing option during drawing retrieval

It would be good to have a possibility to  update an existing drawing during retrieval with the current value of a specific drawing option.


E.g. for the drawing option: drawing_text_color


This option is not applied for existing drawings during retrieval. If there would be a possibility to apply the current value of the option to all drawings that get retrieved in a session it would not be necessary to apply that change manually for every existing drawing. Currently two visual styles (old / new) exist which doesn't makes sense.


This could be made by expanding the currently available functionality that can be applied in config.sup by the new one (marked red) in the same place:


enable_auto_drawing_update yes

auto_drawing_update_command delete_erased_axes

auto_drawing_update_command delete_erased_dimensions

auto_drawing_update <SPR number>

auto_drawing_update <SPR number>

auto_drawing_update <SPR number>

auto_drawing_update_option drawing_text_color

auto_drawing_update_option <drawing option key>

enable_auto_drawing_update no

Or we might fold it in as an update command:

auto_drawing_update_command dtl_option half_view_line solid

But in either syntax, it's a valid proposal.  Current best is to make a mapkey that does File>Prepare>Drawing Properties>Drawing Options>Load file>[a .dtl with the couple options you wish to set], which requires user action.
