Document type info

We talked about the three of the four different options of a Document Type but we did not talk about the Info of a Document Type. 

You can imagine the difference between Name and Alias which is the same as we saw in properties. The name is a human friendly name for the document type and the Alias is the name that we use in code in order to refer to it.

The Icon allow us to select an icon which will make the Document Type easier to recognize between other document types. We can select an icon by clicking the Choose link and a panel with multiple icons will appear on the screen. We select the color that we want to be used and we select an icon by clicking on it.

The Description allows us to define an extra information about the document type which will appear under the document name when the user selects a document type for creating a new page.

We will not talk about the last two options because we have not talked about templates yet.
