Add Element-Row to the Design-Set
What are Element-Rows?
You add 'element-rows' in the dialog, and then 'link' to each row a dimension or parameter.
While a dimension or parameter is linked to an element-row in a Design-Set, you can ONLY edit that dimension or parameter from the Design-Set dialog-box.
You must delete the dimension or parameter from the Design-Set, before you can edit it in the normal way, again.
Dimensions that are grey in the Part-Editor are typically linked to a Design-Set.

Add one element row for each dimension and parameter you will add and edit with the Design-Set.
You can add and remove rows each time you edit the Design-Set. Thus you do not need to add the exact number of rows at this time.
There are three fields in each row:
|•||Element's Name and its Parent.|
|•||Property Value of the dimension or parameters|
|•||The right-side field are the suggested Maximum or Minimum Values and Limits. |
You must click the Min<>Max button to make those active.
The Element Name that is surrounded by a 'white' box, is the active row.
