Is there a way to see all the settings applied to an object?

I'm rendering a file in Boxshot 5. I've previously been working in 4. The rendering is not looking the same in the version 5 file so I've got the version 4 file opened and am making sure all the parameters are the same. Is there a way to see all the settings appleid to the object?

I'm mainly interested in the material I have applied to the bottle, I was experimenting with clear plastic and frosted glass and I can't tell what is applied.

You use OpenGL preview which is fast, but not 100% precise. I would switch to raytracing preview mode, so you see exactly what you get after rendering. There is a button in toolbar for that, so it is really convenient to switch between preview modes.

As for the dark glass I would recommend starting here: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/glass/ especially the medium color section. Then you can read this: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/realistic-rendering/ for better understanding of how lighting and materials work in Boxshot 5.

Let me know if you need any further help after these two tutorials.

GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

In follow up to my original post, I am rendering the same bottle from 4 to 5. The bottle material is simple clean glass. In version 5 I cannot figure out how to get a less opaque (dark) appearance on the glass. The preview looks far lighter than the render. What setting do I use to decrease this opaqueness. Screen shots attached.
