To my knowledge there are no constraints as such - but the real key is to absolutely make sure your reference is correct….

I typically put in a breakpoint and use the Notation Inspector to drill down to the object I want - and of course your reference has to be exactly correct !!!

But once you have that bit - then the Property manager will confirm the property name and ability to be assigned…...

On a quick guess - looking at your reference, if this is indeed a paged pane then you likely need the pane object in the middle there - but of course that’s just a guess !!
