Here’s the Blueprint dialog sheet in action to change the alignment of the current field.
Of course usually it is easier to simply use the Field Properties Panel, but the blueprint does allow you to quickly see and potentially modify all field attributes.
An excellent use for the Field Blueprint Dialog is to take a field in one database and make an exact clone of it in another database, as is shown in this movie. This is done by using copy and paste to transfer the entire blueprint to the second field.
The text in the dialog is actually program code, so you can also copy it directly into a procedure.
To learn about specific field properties see Field Properties.
