Displaying attributes

Once you have added attributes to an item, SWD, overlay or dataset they are shown as properties in the Properties dialog. To see this dialog:

  • for an SWD, overlay or dataset, select the Properties command from its local menu in the Maps Control Bar.
  • for a graphical item, select it in the Map Window and use its local command Properties or the Properties command.

For an item, its properties are also shown on the Properties Control Bar when the item is selected. In both locations attributes appear in both the Attributes category and the All category. You can also view and edit user-defined attributes in the table window.
