The properties pane allows you to view information about a content item, or a slot, all in one place.

To open the content form, double-click a content item or slot in the Content Library or choose "View" from the item's menu. You can show or hide the properties pane by clicking the "i" icon at the top right of the window. The item's name, content type, creation and modification date, and publish status are shown, together with the item's locale and status if set. You can also see the current version and the user that made the most recent change.

In the example below the latest version of the "Get ready for winter promotion" content item is published and it has a status of "Accepted".
