I'm double clicking on my elements and the properties for the element aren't appearing. Why?
In order for your element properties to appear you'll need to make sure you are double clicking on the elements in your drawing pane with the WaterGEMS / SewerGEMS / HAMMER arrow cursor. This arrow cursor is located on the WaterGEMs / SewerGEMS / HAMMER layout tool and is the first icon on the bar. You will need to first enter an Edit session using the Editor toolbar.
When accessing the properties during an editing session the properties window may flash the properties and then quickly disappear. If this happens, stop your edit session, start a new edit session and ensure that you select the WaterGEMS / SewerGEMS / HAMMER personal geodatabase file (.mdb) if the dialog appears asking you to pick what to edit.
