The "SmartMatch" tool resides in the Change Attributes tool box. SmartMatch is an enhanced version of the Change Element Attributes tool. Change Element Attributes will only allow the user to change element level, colour, style, weight, and class. SmartMatch will change all of the active element attribute settings, including those specific to particular element types. For instance, when using SmartMatch on a custom linestyle, not only will it match the settings for the level, colour, weight, it will also set your active linestyle to the custom linestyle chosen in the design file. SmartMatch will match other element settings like multi-line type, active cell/active cell scale, etc.
