How it works
Changing miscellaneous preferences

To change miscellaneous preferences,
Choose Preferences from the main window Edit menu.
gif/plantstudio00090000.gif Click the Miscellaneous tab.
gif/plantstudio00090000.gif Make your changes to the items below, then click OK.

Miscellaneous preferences that affect the main window only
gif/plantstudio00090000.gif Default to metric instead of English in parameter panels
: Actually, only a small number of the parameter panels have units (mostly the length and width parameters). If you check this box, the units in these parameter panels will be in metric when they first appear. You can always click on the unit in the parameter panels to change to different units.
gif/plantstudio00090000.gif Font size for parameter panels: How large to draw the font in all the parameter panels. You don't need to change this unless the font seems too small to read on your screen. It will only affect the parameter panels.

Miscellaneous preferences that affect the whole program
gif/plantstudio00090000.gif Open most recent file at start
: If this option is checked, PlantStudio will save the name of the most recent file you opened or saved in the
settings file and attempt to open the file again when you start.
