Property Inspector Reference

Properties are grouped into Categories. Each category can be collapsed/expanded by a mouse click into triangle icon. The collapsed/expanded state is stored for each object and remains valid for this object even if you switch to other objects.

  • Some properties can be edited in different ways. For example, on picture above:
    • Name property has edit field to edit it.
    • Local Name has popup-menu.
    • Comment has button ”…” that opens dialog where you can type and edit multi-line text.
    • Encrypted has a checkbox.

Properties displayed as BOLD means that the property overrides value of parent object. You can do right click on such property to see contextual menu with command “User Parent Value”.
