|Category||Used for binding categories visually presented as a Y-Axis.|
|If there are one or more empty cells, an empty category is added. Values of multiple empty categories will be merged into one category.|
|Value||Used to bind values to the color of the cells. The bound column/row can represent only numerical values.|
|If there are one or more empty cells, no heatmap cells are added. The order of categories remains unchanged.|

Sets width of the horizontal gap between cells.
The relative gap is measured as a percentage of the cell width.
The absolute gap is measured in absolute units set in Illustrator (px, mm, in, etc.).
Sets the height of the vertical gap between cells.
The relative gap is measured as a percentage of the cell height.
The absolute gap is measured in absolute units set in Illustrator (px, mm, in, etc.)
Applies rounded corners to the cells.
Separate settings for each corner can be applied by clicking on the cogwheel.
