Info Panels

Every geometry (point set, polygon, polygon set, element set) has a so-called Infopanel, which contains information about its geometric properties like number of points, their positions and their connectivity, as well as the name of the geometry, author information and a description. The Infopanel is also the place where you can change this information.

You get the Infopanel of the currently active geometry via menu Inspector --> Geometry --> Info or by pressing Ctrl-i.


Note:
All the information above is stored when the geometry is saved in jvx-format. Most other file formats save only the information about geometric positions and connectivity, not the author information and description. See file formats for details.

Info Panels - Common Part

Though every type of geometry has an Infopanel that is a little bit different from the Infopanel of the other types of geometries, they all have a common part where the name of the geometry, author information and a description can be entered.
