Summary0000442: some editor variable descriptions missing
DescriptionSome editor_var, editor_bool etc. definitions from the def files do not show up when you use "Add property":

The attached screenshot shows that the help text for "patrol" for an AI is missing.

Basically, descriptions only show up for the correct classname, but not for any other "class" that you can select in the same dialog.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is working correctly, the "categories" in the Add Property dialog are not populated from the DEF files but from the game.xml. This dates from an older version of the Entity Inspector and these could be removed altogether if they are a cause of confusion to users (although they do allow more property types that the DEF file, such as "entity" properties which always refer to another entity name in the map).

This issue isn't really resolved - the descriptions are still missing :)

The entries should be populated correctly (however this is done internally), and not just removed, because they are essential.

Without these entries, it is for instance not possible to set "_color" or any other property on a func_static without doing so manually - and the entire point of the the "Add property" dialog is that you don't have to do it manually, and that you get the "help" in form of a description of the spawnarg variable.

I will add a "description" attribute to the XML nodes, and this can be displayed in the text box. These will of course need to be maintained separately, but will be better than no description at all.
