The General Typed List Editor

The designer also offers a General Typed List Editor. This is a special kind of Typed List editor which allows you to edit the typed list which is currently selected in the project explorer. This editor is opened by selecting Project -> General Typed List Editor in the menu, or by clicking the button in the toolbar.

The advantage of the General Typed List Editor is that it keeps the current sub tab selected when you select another typed list in the project explorer, which allows you to e.g. edit the fields of several typed lists without a lot of clicking through tabs.
