Properties window


Allows you to set characteristics of the report and the objects in the report layout.

To set a property, use the arrow tool to select the report or an object in the report layout. You can also choose an object by selecting it in the drop-down list at the top of the Properties window. An icon will appear next to the drop-down list to indicate the type of object selected.

Click the tab that indicates whether to display Object or Visual properties. To set a property, select it in the list and then change its value in the settings box. Setting the property value involves choosing a value from a drop-down list, typing a value, or using a lookup. Some properties can't have their values changed.

Double-clicking a property in the properties list is a shortcut to setting its value. For instance, double-clicking a property whose value is set with a drop-down list will set the property to the next value in the list.
