    Fixed a few warnings in the RST documentation syntax (around code-blocks)

    Do not show context menus for read-only properties, such as "visible" on a Tracked object. Improve documentation to notate new properties and read-only properties. Prevent a crash on if a load_json fails on the timeline.

    Refactor how we divide QMenu context menus on the Property Editor, to sub-divide into smaller lists (if needed). Also, change "Detected Objects" to "Tracked Objects" to be consistent between Parent and Selected Index menus.

    Fix property table view to correctly display choice context menus for Object detector selected objects. This was breaking due to the QIcon being NULL. Also, display the actual class name and object id for Object Detector selected objects choice menu.
