Component pop-up menu

Each component can have its appearance and behavior changed by means of options available from its own pop-up menu. To open a component pop-up menu right-click over the component. You can also press Ctrl+Alt+F10 to open the pop-up menu of the current component. Current component is marked with a shadow. You can switch the current component with Ctrl+T. Ctrl+T selects the next component clockwise, while Ctrl+Shift+T selects the next component anti-clockwise.

The following lists describes all options you can find on pop-up menus of components of different type. As these options are often same for various component types, they are all described here. A given component might not display an option that is irrelevant (e.g. Insert OLE object appears only in OLE components, while Delete is common to all components).

Important! Do not confuse this pop-up menu description with the pop-up menu of HTML components in the presentation mode (this is a typical Internet browser menu) or with the pop-up menu of OLE components in the editing mode (this depends on the implementation of a particular OLE server used in editing a given OLE file).

The component pop-up menus include the following options:
