Working with Elements
A variety of Elements can be added to Tabs to accommodate the management and presentation of asset metadata. Some of these Elements are single-use, that is, they are used only once in an asset type. Once assigned, single-use elements no longer appear in the list of available elements. The various Elements are described below.
To add an Element to a Tab:
- In the Type Manager, under Tabs, select a tab to work with.
- In the Elements box, click Add.

Multiple use elements:
- Text Field provides a field for textual information
