How to set USER PREFERENCES

The behavior of several elements in the software can be configured depending your preferences.

There are 2 different settings that will influence the behavior.

  • System Preferences: General settings for the software
  • User preferences: General settings per logged-in user, valid where the user has logged in.

How to open the User-Preferences screen

  • Select [SYSTEM] in the main menu
  • Select [USER PREFERENCES]
