This dialog box lets you customize the power supply info text that appears beneath each power supply in your layouts.
The large edit box on the left displays the template used when creating the power supply info text. You can rearrange the order and contents of each line as you wish.
The special variables that start with "$" are replaced with the actual value. After the data variable name, you can add additional text labels, such as "%" in the first line for the load percentage.
Please note that you can scale this power supply info by clicking on the text and then using the upper right control point. On larger layouts with many power supplies, sometimes this data can appear too small. The retangular box is the the actual size of the power supply and cannot be scaled.
