On red square, it shows the totally same attributes, such as name,static,mass... . When I change any one,the other red square will not change at the same time. I'm wondering why pr2 shows the same attribute,but other object will not show repeated attributes.

The gazebo GUI under Electric was written in wxwidgets and was probably quite buggy at best. We thought of fixing it up but decided to move to QT based GUI in Fuerte. The new QT based GUI will be more functional and user friendly.

If you need to change object attributes dynamically, I recommend writing a plugin and accessing the object class directly. If you must do so in the GUI under Electric, please setup a very simple test case and file bug reports / submit patch. Thanks!
