The Object Inspector Panel is used to view and modify the attributes of selected objects in a form. The panel appears in the upper right hand corner of any form window that is in Graphics Mode. You can adjust the height of the Object Inspector Panel by dragging the bottom edge up and down.

The Object Inspector Panel is divided into a number of sub-panels. Choose the sub-panel you want to work with by clicking on its icon from the row of icons at the top of the Object Inspector Panel.
