It's far from the only one.  LC objects have a LARGE number of 
properties we can work with. The Inspector shows only a subset of the 
most commonly-used ones.

Inspectors are great for consumer tools, but dev tools tend to provide 
Property Sheets so they can expose a much larger range of properties 
developers will want to work with.

LC attempts to straddle the space between consumer tool and dev tool, in 
both marketing and IDE design, and it sometimes leads to things one camp 
or the other may find confusing.

I threw together a quick Property Sheet a while back:
