Attributes store data associated with a PropertyObject. Every PropertyObject has an Attributes container object under which you can create attribute variables. Use container subproperties as attribute namespaces. For some PropertyObjects, the sequence editor might display an Edit Attributes button next to the name of the PropertyObject to indicate the PropertyObject has attributes.
You can launch the Attributes dialog box in different ways depending on the kind of PropertyObject you are modifying. Typically, you access the Attributes dialog box by clicking an Edit Attributes button or selecting an Edit Attributes context menu item, which is often located in an Advanced submenu or in a context menu you launch by clicking an Advanced button.
Create attributes using the context menu in the attributes variables control. The attributes variables control contains the following columns:
When editing the attributes of a type definition, you can edit both Attributes and TypeAttributes. For a type definition, Attributes determine the default values of the Attributes of type instances. TypeAttributes are attributes for the type definition.
You can sort the contents of the Attributes dialog box. Click any column header to sort the view by the values of that column in increasing order. Click the column header again to sort the values in decreasing order. Click the column header a third time to restore the values to the unsorted order.
