The button opens the Preferences dialog box. It looks like this:
- Language. Change the program language by selecting another from the drop-down list.
- Interface Scale. Choose the size of the interface elements. When it is set to Auto, the program workspace will automatically scale to fit the screen resolution.
- Interface Theme. Select the style of the program interface: Light, Gray, or Dark.
- Autorun Mode check box. If this box is checked, any changes to the frame will be updated automatically. We do not recommend using this mode with the Texture effect or the Frost frame.
This mode does not work when using a Hand Painted frame. You must press the button in order to see changes applied.
- Hints Panel. You can choose how the hints will be shown:
- Recent Files (only in the standalone version). The number of recent documents. The list of the recent files, sorted by time, become visible by right mouse clicking on . Maximum: 30 files.
- Use OS File Dialog check-box (only in the standalone version). You can check this option if you want to use the System Open/Save Dialog. By default, the AKVIS File Dialog is used.
- Lock the Control Panel check-box. It disables the possibility to hide/show the top panel. If the check-box is selected the panel is always visible. Uncheck the option to unlock the panel, and you will be able to hide/show it by clicking on the small triangle button (in the middle of the panel). The minimized panel will be shown when moving the cursor over it.
- Set Frame Packs Folder (only in the standalone version). Select a folder where you want to keep additional frame packs (*.zip files) to use them in the Library of Hand Painted Frames.
By default, this is the AKVIS folder in the Shared Documents folder, but you can choose any folder you wish.
To save changes made in the Preferences window press OK.
If you need, click on the button Default to come back the default settings.
