Properties Docked Window
Access: View | Element Properties.
The Properties window provides a convenient way to view (and in some cases edit) common properties of elements. When an element is selected, the Properties window shows the element's name, stereotype, version, author, dates and other pertinent information.
The Properties window can be a quick method of setting a single property (such as Phase or Status). To access and edit all properties of an element, double-click on the element in a diagram or in the Project Browser.
The Properties window is divided into three expandable sections:
- <Element type> Settings - for the basic element details
- Project - for general housekeeping settings
- Advanced - only active for generalizable elements.
