Next you'll want to configure the settings for the user control. Do this by clicking on the control in the document. You'll then see the settings panel on the right. Here you'll be able to change any setting you want.

There are also settings for Read-only and Hidden for security settings.

Read-only For user roles

The Read-only for setting lets you set any control to be read only. Meaning it will not be editable or usable by anyone except users with designated user roles which can be applied in the user role settings.

The Hidden for settings works the same way as the read-only for option. Except it will hide the control in the document.
