In 3D mode the panel Structure shows the drawing objects as a tree structure. The panel is used to select objects in the drawing, view their properties and also enables the user to control objects visibility. On default while switching to any of the 3D modes the panel is attached to the right border of the program window.

The panel Structure contains two areas with data: Structure and Properties. They can be situated one under another or near each other; the commands (horizontally) and (vertically) are used for it.
