Object's Properties

To open the object's properties window: click the Properties button button or select the Properties item on the File menu.
The content of the dialog window depends on the current object, which properties are displayed in the dialog, and on the panel where the object is located (the list of disks pane on the left or the disks' content on the right).
Let us review the possible types of objects. The pane where the object resides is printed in parentheses.
