  • 'Drop-down list' fields, where you click on the drop-down arrow to select from a discrete list of possible values such as M or F, or Win, Lose or Draw
  • 'Spin' fields, where you click on up or down arrows in the field to increase or decrease the value within certain limits
  • 'Further detail' fields, where you click on an ellipsis ( ... ) in the field to display a dialog in which you enter information (such as notes) or indicate a source of further information (such as a classifier)

  • To override a Tagged Value defined in a parent element, edit the value in the from <parentname> compartment of the Tagged Values window
    Once this has been done the tag is moved into the selected element's Tagged Values; this does not affect the Tagged Values defined in the parent element
