Property Types

When an object is selected, a property menu will appear to the right of the screen with many adjustable options. Some example properties are shown below.





Material, model, or style

The picture or model is used to determine the appearance of an object. To change the picture or model, click on the small image that displays the current object.

Some pictures and models have additional advanced options that can be edited by clicking the small button that is shown to the right of the object's picture.


A numeric property is typically composed of a slider and a text box. To change the value, you can either move the slider or manually type a value in the text box.


A Color property is composed of a small swatch that can be clicked to change the color.



A Toggle property consists of a button that can be turned on or off. In the example shown to the left, clicking the button will enable point editing mode. To toggle the button off, simply click it again.


A Checkbox property is composed of a single box that can be checked or unchecked. In the example shown to the left, corner trim will be added if the box is checked, and removed if the box is not checked.


An Info property box displays information and is not interactive.

Drop-down Arrow

Materials, pictures, and other objects include a drop-down arrow for accessing additional options. This example shows the additional options available for editing a plant.

Curve Type

A Curve Type property is a very specific property type that is only shown when an Edit Points button is toggled on. There are four different curve types that can be selected to define the shape of your object; see Editing Points for more information.
