This setting has two posible values:

This setting enables the user to select the width that is used for drawing the contours in a 3D scene.

It enables the user to define the colors of all the contours of the scene. This property is visible only if the option Custom in the setting Contour Color was selected.

Enable X Axis
Enable Y Axis
Enable Z Axis 

These properties specify the axes that are shown when Show Axes option is selected for a particular object. These settings do not affect axes that are already shown.

Each axis is labeled with the length of the object along that axis (measured in the unit of measure of the sequence).
