  • Dialogs
    By default, when you launch the program the Open Project dialog box is displayed, where you can select one of the existing projects. You can disable this dialog box by clearing the Show 'Open Project...' dialog on startup option on the Dialogs tab (alternatively, you can disable this dialog by clearing the same option in the dialog itself).

If you do not wish this warning message to be displayed, clear the option Show warning if unpublished Document Definition exists (alternatively, you can disable this dialog by clearing the same option in the dialog itself).
    If you want notifications to be shown when exporting documents with errors select Warn if document is exported with errors.
    Select Prompt save changes when switching between documents if you want the program to display a confirmation dialog before saving changes when you switch to another document. If this option is not enabled, changes will be saved automatically.
