Reply to: Customize which attributes show up in Element Properties dialog?

Our UI designer made the choice to show “commonly used” attributes for most elements in this dialog in order to simplify things for most people. There is no simple config file that controls this, so changes would need to be made to some scripts that make up part of the DITA authoring customization.

The Attribute Inspector shows all attributes for all DITA elements, except @class, @xtrc, and @xtrf, which are hidden by default (for good reason).

If you need to work with @class for some reason it can be enabled in the DITA Options dialog (Tools > DITA Options) by enabling the checkbox labeled “Allow editing DITA specialization attributes”.
