Edit the Properties of a Configuration Object

The process of editing a configuration object consists of changing the object's properties in order to achieve the desired behavior when the object is used.

Properties Palette

The properties of a configuration object can be edited in the properties palette.

The properties palette is a dialog box representing a set of properties that can be specified for the configuration object. The list of the properties depends on the type of object being edited.

To display the properties palette:
specify the configuration object
select Edit - Properties

The object's properties are grouped in the properties palette by category. The number of categories and the properties contained in each category depend on the type of object being viewed.

The properties also depend on the values chosen for other properties. For example, in the Type property, when the base type Number is selected, properties that characterize the selected type-Length, Precision, and Non-negative-are added.

Categories of properties can be arranged into tabs or lists. When properties are arranged in a list, the properties themselves can be listed by category or alphabetically (in that case, the category names are not shown).

The Editing Window

For major types of configuration objects (catalogs, documents, journals, etc.), the properties of objects are edited, the list of subordinate objects is controlled, and the interaction of objects is customized using the object editing window.

The editing window is automatically called up when objects of these types are created.

To display the editing window for an existing object:
specify the configuration object
in the Configuration window, select Actions - Change.
