To create a slab style:

Click the tool.

Click Preferences to open the Slab Preferences dialog box and define the slab’s components and attributes (see Slab preferences).

Click Save Preferences as Slab Style.

The Assign Name dialog box opens.

Enter a unique name for the slab style.

If the slab style name already exists, you are prompted to cancel and select a different name, or replace existing slabs with the slab style applied with the edited slab style. If you are replacing slab styles, the Slab Replacement dialog box opens; specify the slab replacement properties.

The new slab style is saved with the file and displays as a slab style in the Resource Manager and Resource Selector.

Alternatively, do one of the following to create a slab style:

Right-click on an unstyled slab, and select New Slab Style from Unstyled Slab from the context menu. For hardscape slabs, select New Slab Style from Unstyled Main Slab or New Slab Style from Unstyled Border Slab to create a new slab style from an unstyled main or border hardscape slab.

From the Resource Manager, click New Resource, select Slab Style, and then click Create.
