How do I add an attribute (like ZLEVEL) to all objects in my Surfer base layer at once?

You can add an attribute to all objects in a base layer at once using the Attribute Table.


To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Base layer in the Object Manager.
  2. Click Map Tools | Layer Tools | Open Attribute Table.
  3. In the Attribute Table, click the Add Field button ().
  4. Enter a name (e.g. "ZLEVEL") and click OK.
  5. The attribute has been added to all objects in the Base layer. You can view/edit the contents either in the Attribute Table, or you can select an item and click the Info tab in the Properties window to edit or view the new attribute.
