You need a text editor sutiable for .py files to manage the parameter file ( parameters.py )

This includes most text editors.  I particularity like:

 +
*notepad++

*geany

You can also use the editor that comes in many python development environments, the simplest of
 +
which may be Idle.  But there are many many others.  If you are reading this you probably have
 +
some experience.

Once you configure an editor in parameters.py you can edit from the <Edit Parms> in the GUI ( see below )

When editing there are couple of gotchas to watch out for.
 +
* Python cares about capitalization, use the capitalization indicated in the default files and the example code.
 +
* Python also cares a lot about how lines are indented.  Do not change the indentation from the sample files, and always indent using spaces ( not tabs. most text editors will use spaces automatically for .py files, even if you use the tab key )
