The properties manager is here to help you create, edit and delete profile properties. 

The layout of the profile properties is self explaining and the cards and properties will be displayed in the profile as they appear in this manager. However, there are several options that you can choose for each property.

1. Cards

Properties are grouped by "card" and it is possible to edit each card name (below : Basic info) . To delete the card, you'll first need to ensure that no property is left in it. 

To move a card position, drag and drop it on top or below other cards from the double dash on the left:
