Adding/Editing Module Properties


The Module Properties dialog gives much information about the module in general. Just as with an official module, user modules have properties. These properties can be edited by the user, when a module is editable (user module).

The Module Properties Dialog can be accessed most easily by right-clicking the module's tab, and selecting Module properties...

Module Properties Dialog

In the Properties tab, the first section, General properties and information, gives information that you would find in the printed edition of this work.  The Language box uses the ISO 693-2 codes. Clicking the link to the left will take you to a web page that shows these codes.

The System properties section is non-editable. It contains information about this module on the computer.

If you scroll down, you will see the Electronic text module properties section. This information is specifically for the electronic edition of the module, not the work itself. Sometimes, electronic and printed editions will have the same information, if they were produced both in printed form and electronically concurrently. Status refers the status of completion or non-completion. If the module is not yet complete, you may put "incomplete" in that area. The Editorial comments and version history is an area where you can elaborate on version changes or any necessary information that a user should know, especially before editing the module.

In the About tab of this dialog, you should put relevant information for this module, especially copyright information, biographical information, prefaces, etc.

For the Settings/Actions tab, see Preparing User Module for Distribution section of this help.
