Cinema 4D allows you to select multiple objects. When different types of object are multiple selected, then the Attribute Manager will only display the tabs that are present for all selected objects. For example, if you select a Spline object and a Bend object, only the Basic Properties and Coordinates tabs will be displayed, because they are the only two tabs these different types of object have in common. With a Capsule object and a Cylinder object selected, four parameter groups will be displayed: Basic Properties, Coordinates, Object Properties and Slice.
If the parameters differ for selected objects their individual values will not be displayed.
In the example above, two spheres have been selected in order to display their parameters in the Attribute Manager. The shaded Radius box indicates that the spheres have different radius values.
If you want to change one of the parameters that lie on a shaded background, this change will be applied to both spheres.
