    Selecting an Item in the Spread Designer
    In This Topic

    To set the properties for something in Spread Designer, you need to select the object with which you want to work, then set the properties for it. For example, to set property for a cell, you must select the cell, then set properties in the properties list or from the right-click menu. There are different ways to select items and there are different properties available for customizing based on the item selected.

    You can tell what object is currently selected by looking at the status bar. For information on how to interpret the notation in the status bar, refer to the Spread Designer Status Bar.

    These are several items that can be selected in the Spread Designer.

    For more information on setting properties of the selected item, refer to Setting Properties in Spread Designer.

    Note: If you are trying to work with an object, and the properties for the object do not appear to be correct, or your choices do not appear to have an effect, make sure you have selected the object with which you intend to work.
