How to use options settings configuration


This feature allows to save all compilation options settings between work sessions as options settings configurations.
All configurations for the current workbook are saved in a file with name of the workbook file including extension plus additional extension “.xcfg”.
The .xcfg file is saved into the same folder as where the workbook file is located.

For example for “Sample.xls” workbook the configuration file name will be “Sample.xls.xcfg”,and for the “Sample.xlsx” workbook the configuration file name will be “Sample.xlsx.xcfg”. Even if two workbooks differ by file extension only, the configuration files for them will be different.

When the “Use options settings configuration” option is selected the first time, all current options settings, which are present on compilation form, are copied into configuration with predefined name.The new configurations may be created and saved with the custom names, but configuration name cannot be modified.

The most appropriate way to use  <Initial settings> is to copy initial options settings into new configurations.

To create new configuration you need to select <New…> item from combo box of available configurations.

Select new settings configuration on compilation form


After that you will see the following form:

New settings configuration form


Enter a name of new configuration and select a configuration from which you want to copy settings.By default the two options are available : <Empty> , which cleans up all fields, and  <Initial settings>.

To edit configurations, you have created, select <Edit…> item from configurations combo box.

Select Edit Item from list


The Edit configuration form appears:


Edit selected configuration setting
Here you may edit configurations names or remove unnecessary configurations.If you delete the configuration which is selected as current, then, after returning into compilation form, the <Initial settings> configuration will be used as current one.
