The Field Settings dialog box is available from within the Prepare phase of the View Builder, but if you don't wish to edit your view,  you can also access the settings directly from the Yellowfin Browse window by right-clicking on a view and selecting Edit, then Field Properties from the menus that appear. 

There are many reasons why you may wish not to edit your view to access the Field Settings dialog box. For example, if your view is very large, it may take some time to open, or you might wish to avoid accidentally changing any other view settings that aren't specific to its fields.

For more information on the Field Settings dialog box, visit our field settings wiki page for full details. In the steps below, we'll show you how to access the dialog box via the Field Properties command from the Browse window.
