This section describes general aspects of the Table Entry editor.
The Entry editor has a two-column layout. The left column contains the attribute descriptions (names), the right column contains the attribute values. Each line represents a name-value pair.
The Entry editor has its own toolbar. The left part displays the distinguished name of the current entry. The right part contains the toolbar icons and menu.
To distinguish the different attribute classes the Entry editor uses different fonts. By default the following colors and fonts are used:
|Attribute class||Default font||Default color||Example|
|objectClass attribute||bold and italic||black||
These colors and fonts could be changed in the Colors and Fonts preferences .
