Using the Distribution Chooser   

Many object properties are capable of using a statistical distribution. To use the Distribution Chooser for these properties:

  1. Click the arrow next to the property to open a menu.
  2. Select Statistical Distribution to open the Distribution Chooser tool, as shown in the image below:

  3. Click the Distribution menu to select a different mathematical distribution if needed.
  4. Edit the specific parameters for that mathematical distribution to adjust the range and probability that certain numbers might be generated.
  5. Use the bar graph to check to see if the probabilities look accurate and make adjustments as needed.
  6. Click somewhere outside the Distribution Chooser to close the tool. You'll notice that the property's box will now show a mathematical expression based on the parameters you specified.
  7. If you need to choose a different distribution or you need to edit the parameters, you can click the Properties button next to the property to re-open the Distribution Chooser. Alternatively you can click inside the property's box and edit the mathematical distribution directly.

For more information about some of the different distributions and their parameters, read the next topics in this section.
