Properties viewports are the chameleons of the viewport family as they are basically empty frames until an item or tool is selected. Once selected, all the editable attributes related to that item are listed in the panel where users can make changes to the options available and, if applicable, see them update in the viewport or render previews.

The main properties panels are those of the toolbox and item properties. In the default modeling interface, the toolbox properties panel appears on the left side of the interface under the toolbox itself. Upon loading, the viewport is empty, but as tools are selected, the attributes appear in the panel. Additionally, when falloffs, actions centers and snapping modes are enabled, additional section of the properties panel will begin to fill presenting all the editable settings related to the active tools and functions.

This is the same case with the item properties, located on the right hand side of the default interface. Unlike the tool properties, it is a tab, so users may need to select the particular 'Properties' tab to make it visible. Upon loading modo, the panel will appear empty, but selecting items populates the panel with the various attributes related to the selected items. Unlike the tool properties where the various additional attributes stack up, the Item properties adds additional sub-tabs down the right hand edge of the panel that relate to all selected/active item layers. Users can select from the available sub-tabs by simply clicking on the named button.
