You can edit a property set only at the hierarchical level for which this property set is defined. Take the level of object types, for example. At this level, you can edit property sets defined for object types only. If a property set is defined for an object class, you can edit this property set only at the level of the object class in question.

The same is true for adding new properties to a property set: You can add new properties to a property set only at the hierarchical level for which this property set is defined. If you want to add a new property only to a subordinate level, you must create a separate property set for the hierarchical level in question.

The characteristics of the properties of a property set cannot be edited directly in the property set. To change the characteristics of a property, you must change the original entry in the property library (see “Editing properties or property groups“). Bimplus automatically applies the change to all property sets of the team that contain the changed property.
