The properties pane is the most complex area of the ReportBuilder. The content changes depending on which type of element you are working on or if you are working on the report options which affect all elements.
At the top is the name of the element you are editing and an ‘X’ to close the properties pane.
Below that are some tabs that group properties together.
Next to the tabs is a menu. The options in this menu only affect the current element.
Each tab is divided into logical sections with the name of the property on the left and the value on the right.
The exact workings of the different properties and settings are covered in other articles.
Tip: Check the top of the properties pane to see what you are editing. If you are editing report level properties, it will say so. If you are editing the properties of an element, it will show the title of the element and the element will have a blue border around it in the view area.
