Figure 8.3: Setting an Object's Description

The description will not appear in the image, but it can be used to locate and select objects on the canvas using the Navigate->Find By Description or Navigate->Add By Description menu items. The description may also be used as a comment when exporting images, depending on the file type. Note that if you assign a description to a group, you will lose the description if you later ungroup it.
