Once you have selected options for an item in Visual Impression, you can use those options and apply them to other items in the scene. To do this, go to the Summary tab and selection one of the options under “Apply to More Items” based on your needs. The following is an explanation of what each selection does:
All occurrences of this item = Apply to all items with the exact same part number.
Items accepting all of the options above = Apply to all items, regardless of part number, that have the exact same options available. For example, chairs of the same series that may differ in part number but require all the same option specification.
Items accepting some or all of the options above = Apply to all items that a given option is available on. For example, everything that can receive black paint.
The trick here is that manufacturers organize their data and options differently. The first option always works. The way the other two options work is dependent on the manufacturer you are using and the way their data is organized.
