Profile marking sets are rule-based and can be customized by each facility.

When you select multiple objects, you can change the properties that those objects have in common. If the value of the property is the same for the objects that you have selected, that value displays in the ribbon bar. If the values are different, the box for that value is blank. Changing the value of a property makes that the value for all of the selected objects.
