Copy Area Properties

Copying areas allows you to set the properties of one area, then quickly copy those properties to other areas without having to reset the properties of each individual area.

Note: When you copy the properties of one area to another, the only properties on the Area Properties popup window that are not copied are the area name and elevation. All other properties are copied.
