Controls whether a prototype's children are inherited by notes using that prototype.

Thus this attribute only has meaning for notes for which $IsPrototype is also set to true.

Children created by this method are not removed from inheriting notes if they subsequently cease to use the prototype.

By default (true ) all new prototypes will bequeath children and all descendants.

For prototypes that do not/will not have children this attribute has no effect on general function. However, if you like to nest your prototypes, do set this attribute to False.

Do not bequeath children that are themselves prototypes. Instead, create separate prototypes outside the bequeathed layout and set the source notes in the latter to use a prototype.
