The Attributes Menu: Set Display Attributes

The Attributes Menu contains commands primarily for modifying the presentation format of Xic. Each sub-window has an independent set of attributes, which are initially set to those of the main window.

The table below summarizes the command buttons found in the Attributes Menu, listing the internal name and command function.

The Connection Dots button appears only when the full Xic feature set is enabled, not in the XicII or Xiv virtual products.

The sub-menu brought up by the Main Window button is identical to the Attributes menu in the sub-windows produced from the Viewport button in the View Menu. The settings apply to the main window.
