The Params Dialog is in many ways the heart of the Synfig interface. This is where all the parameters of the layers you create are edited, and in some less obvious ways,
The layout of the Params Dialog is quite simple - it is simply a two column list

The second column, 'Value', is where the data for each of the parameters are listed. Several different types of data can be shown here.

There are three params that are shared between nearly every layer:
