The information is structured in 3 areas (the object definition and two tabs with atributes definition). The first contains the document type definition, the second, the metadata assigned to this type, and the third one this type document metadata inherited from all ancestors. Metadata is the sum total of the type-specific metadata and inherited. In turn, all these metadata are transmitted to the descendants of the current types of documents.

The type definition consists of several stages. You must first create the base definition, metadata can be added later (in the second tab), and finally, after confirming the definition and saving it, reopen and create the type in the repository (via the Create button) to store documents of that type.
