=== GUI Variable Editor and Property Inspector ===
 +

Octave has a preliminary implementation of a Variable Editor: a spreadsheet-like tool for quickly editing and visualizing variables.  The initial phase of the project will be learning how the implementation was done.
 +
 +
With the knowledge gained, the second part of the project will be to implement a Property Inspector.  This is a spreadsheet like interface to the many, many graphics properties that exist and are different on a per-object basis.  The goal would be not only the concise-display of the existing properties, but a reasonable user interface to change them.  As examples, Boolean properties should be able to be toggled with a double-click; Radio properties should have a drop-down list of only the supported options; Other properties that can be modified should have the constraints built-in (for example, Linewidth must be a scalar, while Position must be a 1x4 vector).  It would also be important to have easy access to the documentation of a property.

 +
For reference, Matlab has a similar Property Inspector (https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/inspect.html).
