Parameters are grouped together and divided into sections by dashed divider lines and pop-up menus.

Some dividers have a light bulb next to the section name. The light bulb means that there are some ideas, tips and tricks in the pop-up menu. Just click on the pop-up menu and you’ll see the ideas. Selecting an idea won’t change the template.
