Almost all object have a vast number of options that one can fiddle 
around with; the Props Inspector only
displays a subset of them; why? I don't know, but I can hazard a guess:

a Props Inspector that displayed ALL the props of each object might be 
so unwieldy as to be virtually unusable.

"Just for fun" . . .

Set up a new stack with a scrollingListField field called "PROPPS"

and try this in the MessageBox:

put the propertyNames into fld "PROPPS"

and "blow your mind" . . .   :)
