In the SolidWorks software, PropertyManager is available for editing properties such as coordinates, angles, and other values for the entity (POINT, LINE, CIRCLE, ELLIPSE, or POLYGON) that you draw. The properties available are different for each type of entity.

To enable the PropertyManager, click Tools > Options > System Options > General and select the Enable PropertyManager check box. When you finish drawing an entity, the PropertyManager appears at the left of the graphics area. Edit a value and click elsewhere on the PropertyManager to see the change in the graphics area. To close the PropertyManager, click in the graphics area or type a new command.

The PropertyManager also appears when you select an entity of a type handled by the PropertyManager, or when you issue a command, such as MOVE or COPY, that affects an entity.
