The LightWave Server Dictionary Manager translates your DDL 'definitions' to <type> and <element> elements in your Dictionary File. However, the <element> element supports features not available in DDL. Though you could modify the generated <element> elements to take advantage of these features, you'd have to repeat the modifications if you refresh your Dictionary. Instead, you can create 'annotations' on DDL definition elements that Dictionary Manager will recognize and incorporate into your Dictionary automatically.
