Quick Properties
 
 
 

With the Quick Properties palette, for a selected object, you can access a sub-set of the properties that are accessible from the Properties palette.

You can customize the properties that are displayed on the Quick Properties palette. The properties (displayed when an object is selected) are common to all object types and are specific to the object that was selected. The available properties are the same as those on the Properties palette and for rollover tooltips.

NoteYou can synchronize the properties that are displayed on the Quick Properties palette with those for rollover tooltips.

Display Objects Properties on the Quick Properties Palette

When customizing the Quick Properties palette, you control which object types display properties on the Quick Properties palette and which properties are displayed. You use the Objects pane to add and remove the object types that are set to display properties on the Quick Properties palette. Once an object type is added to the Objects pane, you can then decide which properties to display when on object of that type is selected in the drawing window.

You can change the general properties for a selected object type or for all object types. Selecting an object type from the Objects pane allows you to control the display of the general properties for the selected object type, or by clicking the General button at the bottom of the Objects pane you can override the general properties of all object types.

When the General button at the bottom of the Objects pane is clicked, a list of the general properties that can be used to override the general properties of all object types is displayed along with the Reset Overrides button. Selecting the general properties that you want to display for all object types and clicking Reset Overrides applies the selected general properties to all listed object types in the Objects pane. However, after applying a general property to all object types you can deselect any general property for a specific object type by selecting the object type and deselecting the property.

Display the Quick Properties Palette

The Quick Properties palette is displayed when objects are selected, if the object type of the selected objects is supported for Quick Properties, and if the QPMODE system variable is set to 1 or 2. See Display and Change the Properties of Objects in the User’s Guide for more information about controlling the display of the Quick Properties.

NoteWhen the system variable QPMODE is set to a value of 1, the general properties that are checked are displayed in the Quick Properties palette for all object types that are not in the list on the Objects pane.
