This dialog allows you to change settings that determine the behaviour of the Condes application.

Auto update

Check for program updates upon launching Condes
When this option is checked, on startup Condes will start the autoupdater program, which will check if a newer version of Condes is available.

Language

Language for symbols
This is the language used for the description symbols.  The titles are used when printing textual control descriptions and as guiding texts when editing control descriptions.

The following languages are available: Danish, English, Australian English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

The default option is <Windows default>.  When this option is selected, the language, which is set in Windows' control panel, will be used.

Language for menus
This is the language used for menus and dialog texts.  The following languages are available:  Danish, English, French, Finnish, German, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

The default option is <Windows default>.  When this option is selected, the language, which is set in Windows' control panel, will be used.

Printers

Remember printer settings
When this option is checked, Condes will remember which printer it is set up to use, and the settings for that particular printer.

PostScript printers

Use PostScript pass-through
When this option is checked, Condes not use the Windows printer driver for the OCAD map.  Instead Condes will generate the PostScript code and pass it directly to the printer.   This option alleviates the problem caused by the Windows 95/98/ME PostScript printer driver, which results in extremely large print jobs.

Color management

Use Windows Color Management to convert OCAD map colors
This option controls how Condes converts OCAD map colors from the CMYK colors in the map file to the RGB colors that are needed by Windows to render the map.

When this option is checked, Condes will use the Windows Color Management system for the conversion.  When this option is unchecked, Condes will use a simple algorithm for the conversion.

You may want to experiment with printouts for your printer in order to determine which option works best for you.

Real World Coordinates

Default UTM Zone
When you use a geo positioned bitmap file as the map file, you'll need to enter the UTM zone that corresponds to the location of the map.   This zone is normally the same for all maps in your local area, so it is convenient to save a default UTM zone to be used for new maps.  See also Geo Positioning and Real World Coordinates
