Blank Custom Properties

You can create blank custom or configuration-specific properties in the Summary Information dialog box.

This functionality is useful, for example, when you want to create a template that contains custom properties but you do not want to give those properties specific starting values.

To add a blank custom or configuration-specific property:

  1. Click File > Properties.
  2. On the Custom tab or the Configuration Specific tab:
    1. Click <Type a new property> in the Property Name column for the blank property row, then type a custom property name.
    2. Select a property type in the Type column for the new property.
  3. If necessary, repeat step 2 to add more custom properties.
  4. Click OK.
