Hi @LionelC18 ,
According to the documentation here,

"PLOTS are children of the different animation helpers and will be used to constrain meshes without animating them. So, in the "Shared" layer you would make a new "PLOTS" layer, and then in that layer you would create the required helpers."

That's why you see 'PLOT' in the properties

Regards,
Boris
