The Object inspector dialog box is located to the left of the area of graphical model definition.
Width of the dialog box may be freely adjusted so that as much space as possible is left for the
area of graphical model definition.
The Object Inspector dialog box shown in the drawing below, can be divided into three parts:
• options that enable filtering model elements
• six tabs containing lists (set) of project elements depending on the stage of the design
process (modeling / positions / printouts)
• table presenting properties of selected objects.

Options contained in the top part of the dialog box allow limiting the number of elements
presented on the tabs describing model elements by means of filters. Filters also enable the user
to decrease the number of model elements shown in the graphical editor viewer.
The selection list located in the top part of the dialog box contains the list of filters defined by the
user in the current project. A filter may be defined in the Filter definition dialog box that can be

opened once the button is pressed.

The list always contains three default filters (they cannot be deleted):
• all objects - cancels any filter and displays all objects defined in the current project on the list
• current selection - an element list is limited to the elements that are currently selected in a
model presented in the field of graphical model definition
• hide current selection – hides elements currently selected in a model presented in the field of
graphical model definition (obviously, if there are no objects selected, then none of them can
be hidden); the way this filter works is similar to that of the Current selection filter, however,
the result the Hide current selection filter causes is an inversion of the result the Current
selection filter brings.
Filtering is carried out after pressing the Apply button. All objects defined once filtering has been
performed, will be displayed on the list (even if they do not satisfy a filtering condition) till the next
filtering operation is made.
Once the Filter definition dialog box is closed, the list of filters defined is available in the Object
Inspector dialog box.
If the Use filtering on screen option is switched on, the model graphical editor will present only
these elements that are shown on the list in the Inspector dialog box.

The middle part of the dialog box includes the following tabs:

• Model
• Parts edition
• Positions

• Printouts
• Templates
• Structural Detailing Center.

This part of the dialog box allows presenting on the successive tabs, the current list of objects
defined in the project in AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Steel. Each of the tabs is intended for
presenting elements on different stages of a design process, therefore, each of them comprises
different types of objects organized in a slightly different manner.

The bottom part of the dialog box contains the table with properties of elements selected on the
list. The table operates in the identical manner as all the properties’ dialog boxes in the AutoCAD
® program. Table characteristics include as follows:
• if one of the elements is selected, then the table presents all properties of a selected element
• if several objects of the same type are selected, then the table presents all the fields with
properties relevant to the selected element type, however, only the values that are common
for all the elements are presented; the remaining fields are empty (yet they may be changed)
• if several objects of different types are selected, the table presents only the fields with
properties that are common for all object types.

The first table column shows a name of a property (information), while the second one displays its
current value. A table cell that can be changed may act like an option (edit field, selection list,
button, etc.).

The table with object properties has been designed in such a manner so that it could present
these object properties that are important from the engineering viewpoint. It usually shows only
basic information (properties). Not all the pieces of information displayed in the table can be
changed.
