 Already in v5.0.0


Controls whether a prototype's children are inherited by notes using that prototype.

Thus this attribute only has meaning for notes for which $IsPrototype is also set to true.

Children created by this method are not removed from inheriting notes if they subsequently cease to use the prototype.

By default (true ) all new prototypes will bequeath children and all descendants. Prior to v5.8.0, this was only direct children but not descendants. This negates the the previous need to use additional prototypes to give children to a prototype's children.

For prototypes that don't/won't have children this attribute has no effect on general function.
