Open the Preferences dialog by pressing on . The window looks like this:
- Language. To switch the interface language, select another language 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 or Dark.
- Initial Scale. This parameter affects how the image will appear in the program when you first open it. The parameter can have one of two values:
- If the parameter is set to Fit to View, the image will be scaled so that it will fit completely within the Image Window;
- If the parameter is set to 100% the image will not be scaled. In most cases, when an image is opened at 100% scale the entire image will not fit within the Image Window.
- Selection Area. This parameter defines how the selection appears. Please choose one of two variants:
- "Marching ants". The selection is enclosed in borders that look like a "running" dotted line. This is the default value.
- Filled with color. The selection will be filled with a color.
By default the Color is red but you can change it. Just double-click on the color plate and select a color from the Select Color dialog.
The Opacity parameter allows you to adjust the opacity of the color used to highlight the selection.

- Recent Files (available 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. 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 enabled 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.
