Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace.

For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.
