is a global option that specifies the display of options in the Option Inspector.


  • The typical usage is OptionInspectorSettings->{opt1->val1,opt2->val2,}.
  • The following options may be specified:
  • "Scope""Notebook"level displayed in the Option Inspector window
    "ViewAs""Browser"display format for the Option Inspector window.
    "WindowMargins"{{20,Automatic}, {45,Automatic}}margin size around the Option Inspector window
    "WindowSize"{913,508}size of the Option Inspector window
  • With the default setting "Scope"->"Selection", only those options that can be set at the level of the selection are displayed in the window. All other options are dimmed.
  • The possible settings, in increasing order of precedence, are "Global", "Notebook", and "Selection".
  • With the default setting "ViewAs"->"Browser", the options are grouped into categories according to their inheritance levels (Global, Notebook, or Selection) and function. There is some overlap between the different categories, with some options listed in more than one place.
  • With the setting "ViewAs"->"Alphabetical", the options are listed in alphabetical order.
  • With the setting "ViewAs"->"Text", only those options whose settings differ from their default values are listed, as plain text.
