Display Data shows the Stage coordinates and other information when mousing over a Display.

Display Spacing shows the pixel distance, and physical units if active, between the centre of Displays to aid protector positioning.

Crop Values shows the number of pixels, relative to the Group surface size, to be cropped for each display to aid the creation of media proxies.

4:3 Marks shows 4:3 aspect ratio guide lines (for non 4:3 aspect ratio Displays).
