The properties of an object are defined in the Properties dialog box. When you draw an object, the properties dialog appear, allowing you to define the attributes.
You can also double-click the object (or choose Edit | Properties) to display the properties dialog.
If an object is part of a group, part of a pasted Genie or symbol, or part of the page's template, you can access the object's properties by pressing CTRL and double-clicking the object. Alternatively, choose Tools | Goto Object, click the object, and then click OK.
