How to edit the properties of an Area
Selecting an area in the left panel makes its properties adjustable in the right panel. Multiple kinds of properties exist for areas. It's possible to switch between the various types of properties by selecting the desired tab at the top of the right panel.
Areas have a number of general properties.
The name of the area. This is used to differentiate between different areas. If the area is part of an overlay, the name is also used in the legend of the overlay. The name can be changed by changing the text in this field.
The color of the area. When the area is displayed in the 3D Visualization, the area is displayed using this color. You can change this by selecting the color field. A panel will appear in which you can specify the desired color. The color will be available as an attribute as well.
