Summary

The Select columns dialog is used to choose which columns to show or hide in the Components panel.

Access

The dialog is accessed by right-clicking in the header of the Components panel (accessed by clicking  at the bottom right of the workspace then selecting Components) then choosing Select Columns.

Options/Controls

  • Left  icon - click to toggle between various view modes:
    • (All) - click to display all items featured on the list.
    • (Blanks) - click to display no items featured on the list. This feature will only clear the items in the Select columns dialog, not the Components panel.

  • Right  icon - click to open a drop-down from where you can choose the column to display. When a specific column is selected, the icon will turn blue .
  • List - this is a list of all possible columns that can display in the Components panel. When an item displays , that column will be displayed in the Components panel. When an item displays , that column will not be displayed in the Components panel. Click the symbols to toggle the show/hide function.
  • Up/Down - click to move the selected item up or down in the list. Only items that are checked may be moved. This determines the order in which the columns will appear in the Components panel.
