The table below contains all properties available for the PDF-XChange Editor tools and comments. Click Properties in the Format Tab when tools are selected to view/edit tool properties in the Properties pane.

 

 

GENERAL

 

 

PROPERTY

 

 

DEFINITION

 

 

Diameter

 

The Diameter property determines the diameter of the Eraser Tool.

 

Exclusive Mode

 

 

The Exclusive Mode property simplifies the process of using tools. When it is enabled, the pointer ignores all interactive elements of documents other than base content. This makes it possible to create content on areas that overlap with other content without the risk of accidentally selecting undesired items. When Exclusive Mode is disabled, the pointer recognizes and interacts with all underlying elements in the usual manner.

 

 

Inertial Scroll

 

 

The Inertial Scroll property is a dynamic scrolling option. When it is enabled, document pages will continue to scroll and come to a stop gradually after scrolling actions are performed. When it is disabled document pages will scroll in synchronization with the pointer.

 

 

Keep Selected

 

 

The Keep Selected property is an editing convenience for tools. When it is enabled tools will remain selected after they are used. When it is disabled the active tool reverts to the designated default tool after a single use.
