Re-inheritance is an efficient way of limiting the total number of settings for a particular application. The fewer local settings there are, the more efficient the maintenance of your web application will be. To this end, you can use the Reset button on the Property Inspector to reset a property's value to the value as defined for the object's superclass. In other words, the higher up in the hierarchy you define settings, the fewer settings there are, and the more efficient development and maintenance will be.

For example, if you want to change the Orientation property for a group object back from Vertical to Horizontal (the default value), then it is better to use the Reset button than to change the setting manually.

To reset a property:

1. In the Property Inspector, click the property that you want to reset to the initial value.
2. Click the Reset button, or click the right mouse button, and then choose Reset.
