Using the Property inspector

Using the Property inspector

The Property inspector lets you examine and edit the most common properties for the currently selected page element, such as text or an inserted object. The contents of the Property inspector vary depending on the element selected.

This is a picture of the feature being described.

To show or hide the Property inspector:

  • Select Window > Properties.

To expand or collapse the Property inspector:

  • Click the expander arrow in the lower-right corner of the Property inspector.

To view properties for a page element:

  • Select the page element in the Document window.

To change properties for a page element:

  1. Select the page element in the Document window.
  2. Change any of the properties in the Property inspector.

    Most changes you make to properties are immediately applied in the Document window.

  3. If your changes are not applied immediately, do one of the following:
    • Click outside the property-editing text fields.
    • Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Macintosh).
    • Press Tab to switch to another property.
