    Hi,

    Can someone explain the meaning of the bold part? Please. :)

    "
    You can specify new properties and whether to pass down existing property definitions and datatype references.​

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe this means that the new properties will "inherit" the definitions and references of the old ones.

    The most common context in which I use "pass down" is with heredity and parentage. For example:

    He is tall and so are all of his children. He passed down his height to them.
