Symbol Properties

The properties used to modify a symbol are located to the right of the screen when your symbol is selected. Only some of these properties can be adjusted right before adding the symbol to your landscape, but all of the properties can be adjusted after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.
