Objects possess a lot of properties describing the object. E.g. the
file name or the data type of a spectrum is a property of a spectrum object.
These properties are required in the software for two reasons. The application
evaluates the properties of an object to determine which operations are
allowed with this object. The user gets some additional background information
from the properties of an object, e.g. the file location on his hard disc
or the data type.
Properties cannot be changed by the user, because this would change
the characteristics of an object. User defined object properties are called
labels and they can be added and customized to
Properties are organized in categories (e.g. "General", "x-Axis")
and are shown in the properties

Properties can be added to the printout of an object either by activating
properties flag in the print layout or by inserting the corresponding
into a print text field. Activating the print properties flag will print
