The Properties window displays information about selected logic objects or device resources. When you select an object, its properties dynamically display in the Properties window. To open the Properties window, select Window > Properties. Alternatively, you can right-click an object, and select <ObjectType> properties from the popup menu.

The name of the Properties window changes to reflect the selected object. For example, the window is called the BEL Properties window when a BEL is selected or the Clock Region Properties window when a clock region is selected.

The Properties window includes several views to organize information under different categories. The available views and the information they display depend on the type of object selected. For example, the following figure shows the Cell Properties window with the Properties view displayed for the selected cell.

Important: If multiple objects are selected, the Properties window displays the properties for the most recently selected object. To view and edit properties for multiple objects, use the Property Editor as described in Editing Properties for Multiple Objects.
