5.6. Properties View

The Properties View displays a list of editable text fields, lists and other elements that allow to edit the properties of the selected report objects. To edit the properties of an object, select the object in the Design Editor window or in the Outline View. Several objects can be selected in order to edit their common properties at the same time.

To edit a property simply click on the property title or value. This activates an editor which can be used to change the current value of the property. To apply a value change simply press Enter. To cancel the change press Escape.

In some cases it is desirable to change a property to its default value. This is particularly useful for font properties. To do so, use the "Restore Default Value" button in the Properties View toolbar:
