Detail Edit Dialog Options
KeyCreator \ Detail \ Overview \ Detail-Edit-Dialog-Options

When you change the attributes of a detail entity, the detail edit dialog box is displayed after you select the detail entity (or entities) you intend to modify. This dialog is the same as the Detail Options dialog box except the detail edit dialog populated olny with those options needed for the selected detail entity. See Detail Options and the related topic links there for descriptions of the options on this dialog.

If different detail entities are selected for modification, additional panes are displayed in the dialog box, as they relate to the selected entities. Settings that have checkboxes by default will have "tri-state" checkboxes when the dialog appears in Edit mode.

  • text-indent: 0px;"> Mixed – A mixed checkbox is grayed out, and contains a checkmark. When a checkbox is "mixed," the status of the setting(s) to which it is associated will not change.

  • text-indent: 0px;"> Checked – Contains a checkmark. When a checkbox is selected, the setting(s) to which it is associated is enabled.

  • text-indent: 0px;"> Unchecked – An empty box. When a checkbox is empty, the setting(s) to which it is associated is disabled.

Note: A check box may appear to the left of every field that has a drop box. This check box appears only when the values for that field are different in the details selected.  When the check box is selected, the field is available and allows you to set the value for all the dimensions selected for editing.
