You can double-click properties in the Original Recognition Properties and the All Active Properties sections to include them in this grid. Icons indicate the origin of the property:

A right arrow icon Indicates that the property was added from the All Active Properties list.

A left arrow icon Indicates that the property was added from the original recognition properties.

A double arrow icon Indicates that the property was added from the original recognition properties and the All Active Properties list.
