Lesson 2. Getting Started > Using Properties Boxes

Using Properties Boxes

As you work with databases, documents, text, and other Notes objects, you need to set attributes for the selected item. This is usually done in a Properties box. Although it resembles a dialog box, you work differently with a Properties box. A Properties box displays only the properties of a specific item, such as selected text or a database. Properties contain information about an item such as its name, location, settings, design, size, and so on. When you make a selection in a Properties box, it takes effect immediately—even though the Properties box remains onscreen as you work. You won’t see an OK or Cancel button.

Properties boxes contain tabbed pages that offer various options for the item you have selected. Figure 2.3 shows the properties box for selected text in a document.
