Several layer properties can be modified to fine-tune the styles of the map.
Quickly Modify the Style of a Layer
In the Layer Control, expand the node located on the left of a layer and double-click the <<Default>> symbol. Many settings can be adjusted in the Style Properties dialog such as the size, color and shape.
Modify the Layer Properties
Many other settings can be adjusted by double-clicking the layer's node in the Layer Control. For example, it is possible to change the name of a layer in the General tab of the Layer Properties dialog. In addition, you can apply a Multiply Blend Mode on a polygon layer. This property allows you to see the base map by transparency, without changing the Opacity of the layer's fill color.
