Notes:

When the multiple Variable Properties dialog box is initially opened and the Properties aren't shared a default value is used:

The Data page value for the Maximum threshold or Minimum threshold under Lock to color display minimum is set once on initial use of the Multiple Variable Properties dialog box. Subsequent changes to the Echogram Display Color display minimum are not passed on to multiple Variable Properties.

A Regions page region class can be denoted as (in use by operator) and be unsupported for multiple Variable Properties. This occurs when a selected variable uses a region class as in the case of a Region bitmap virtual variable.
