Setting Unique Tool Attributes with Style Tools

Question

When I use WildTools, setting the attributes for one tool (e.g. 2 point, blue pen color) applies those attributes to all the WildTools. How do I assign a unique attribute to each WildTools tool so they work similar to PowerCADD’s tool palette?

Requirements

WildTools version 5 and PowerCADD 2000 v5.0.12 and OS? 9.2.2 minimum. WildTools v7.1.3 and PowerCADD 6.2.1 running on Mac OS X Panther or newer recommended

Question

Sometimes when I open files I see a dialog box warning me the file is marked as "modifiable" (see picture below). It usually appears when I try to open a file after my Mac or PowerCADD has unexpectedly quit. Why does that happen and should I be concerned about the integrity of the file?

Requirements

Any version of Mac OS? X, any version of PowerCADD 6 (Mac OS 10.3.6 and PowerCADD 6.2 or better recommended)
