Difficulty Types

Developing a particular element might be a simple task or more complex. In the element Properties definition, the level of difficult of developing that element is defined in the Difficulty field. You can select the appropriate value from a drop-down list, which initially contains the system values High, Medium and Low. You can add to or replace any of these values with your own custom values.
