A harness connector type is a child object of a harness connector. It is used to name the type of placed harness connector.
The harness connector type is automatically placed when the parent harness connector object is placed. It is not a design object that the user can directly place. When a harness type is initially placed, the harness connector type will appear as (*) until renamed.
The harness connector type string can be edited graphically using what is known as in-place editing. To edit a harness connector type in-place, click once to select, pause for a second, then click a second time to enter edit mode. Once editing is complete, press Enter or click away from the string to exit in-place editing mode.
The following methods of non-graphical editing are available:

After placement, the Parameter dialog and the Parameter version of the Properties panel can be accessed by:
A List panel allows the designer to display design objects from one or more documents in tabular format, enabling quick inspection and modification of object attributes. Used in conjunction with appropriate filtering - by using the applicable Filter panel, or the Find Similar Objects dialog - it enables the display of just those objects falling under the scope of the active filter – allowing the designer to target and edit multiple design objects with greater accuracy and efficiency.
