For most purposes, you would select properties in the explorer window. See Selecting Elements in the Explorer [Interface and Tools].
However, if relationship links are visible then you can select certain types of properties in the 3D and schematic views,
as described in this section.
After you have selected a property, you can display its editor by pressing Enter, and you can delete the property by pressing
Delete. When constrained objects or constraint properties are selected, you can quickly select the constraining objects using
Property Selection Filters
The menu button has some property selection filters that let you restrict the selection to a specific type of property. For more
information about selection filters in general, see Selecting.

lets you select the joint properties of bone elements in kinematic chains. This works only in 3D views, and or must be visible.
let you select constraint properties. must be visible in 3D views, and must be on in the schematic view.
lets you select operators that are involved in a modeling relation, for example, between a lofted surface and its input generator
curves. must be visible in 3D views, and must be on in the schematic view.
lets you select materials. This works only in schematic views, and must be visible.
is not really a property filter. It lets you select objects that have a material applied locally, that is, not inherited
from the scene or a parent node.
Selecting Properties in 3D and Schematic Views
To select properties in 3D or schematic views, you must display relations and then click on the line that represents the relation.

To select properties in 3D and schematic views
Click on the line representing the property (not the label that describes the property).
Note that you cannot select multiple properties in this way — pressing the Shift key has no effect. If you need to select
multiple properties, see Selecting Elements in the Explorer.
