Show Fill Colors, Show Stroke Colors, Show Grid, Show Rulers, Show Guidelines, Show Loop Direction
Each of the above options will make the corresponding menu option startup with that state. However, loading an old layout may change some of these options, since they are stored with the layout file.
Link with Show Strokes
This option means Show Strokes is automatically enabled and disabled when Show Fill Colors is checked.
Check this to have strokes draw by default.
Draw Strokes Behind Fill
This is the default state for the corresponding button on the Color Property Bar.
Check this to have guidelines draw by default.
Guidelines appear above objects
Check this option to make guidelines appear above all objects. This is helpful if you want to see the guidelines at all times.
Turn this option on when you want to be able to interrupt the display refreshing by pressing Esc on the keyboard. Turning this off will speed up the drawing slightly, but you won't be able to interrupt the display refreshing.
Turn on this option when you want LED Wizard to remember where you placed the application windows when close and restart any LED Wizard module. When this is turned off, Windows will determine the best position and size of new application windows.
Draw center handles of grouped objects
Select this to show the center handle when grouping objects. This can be distracting so it?s been made optional.
Ignore background color when printing
Select this to hide the background color when printing.
Fill Open Loops
Check this to fill open loops. Otherwise open loop will not draw filled.
Extra gap around layout
This refers to the extra gap that can added to a fully zoomed out view of the layout. Note that you can use Alt+Right click to zoom out beyond the layout size.
Preview Time Threshold
This setting determines how responsive the program will be when you manipulate complex graphics. If drawing the graphic in question takes longer than this value (in milliseconds), it will be drawn as a simple box and then updated after about ? second of no mouse movement. You can increase the responsiveness of the software by using a value of 50 ms or less.
This value tells the software when it should update the screen if a refresh takes too long. For example, the default of 1500ms (1 ? seconds), means if that amount of time has elapsed during a refresh, what?s been rendered so far will be transferred to the screen, and rendering will continue. This will repeat as necessary. This feature makes it clear to the user that rendering is still occurring when the layout is very complex and would otherwise takes many seconds to render, and it might appear that the program has hung.
Mouse Wheel Zoom %:
This is the amount of zoom to perform when the mouse wheel is rotated.
Middle Mouse Button
Select the action to perform when the middle mouse button is pressed.
Extra Fill Pixel Width
This adds some width to all fills.
