attached is an updated patch against the current default branch. I took the liberty of filling in some categories on new properties.  The updated printdoc function seems ok, the change for categories didn't change much, mainly nesting the main function in another for loop to go through by category. Not too sure how to call/use genpropcod.m, though to test it out.

Also, there are about a dozen properties with no category, as they didn't seem to fit any of the others. they have a ##Uncategorized comment to make it easy for to find and replace them later. I assume they should be defaulted to the Miscellaneous section if I understand the intent correctly.

Small tweaks to this would be easy later, but there are a lot of individual line changes that i suspect would render this patch stale fairly quickly if anyone else makes property changes.   Attached both the updated patch and the modified genpropdoc.m

I think it would be worthwhile doing something like this to make the documentation more useful.
Unfortunately, the patch no longer applies and got incomplete in the meantime.
Could you please rebase the patch on the current default branch?

When I have a bug number I'll submit a first draft of a patch that aims at putting every grapĥics properties into a category so that the long lists of graphics properties are split into more readable blocks.
