Course Layout Editor Settings
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

This dialog allows you to change standard settings that determine the behaviour of the Course Layout Editor.

When you create a new event file

Automatically draw a frame around the print area
A print area can have a frame drawn around it.  When this option is checked, the Course Layout Editor will automatically enable the frame around the print area when you create a new event file.   Uncheck this option if you do not want Condes to automatically enable the frame around the print area.

This option ONLY controls what happens when a new event file is created.  You can still control the settings for the print area by double clicking on the edge/frame at any time.  So, if you want to enable/disable the frame at a later stage, just double-click on the print area edge.

When you create a new course

Automatically create a text on the map with the course name
When you create a new course, Condes will automatically place a text with the course name on the map.
Uncheck this option to disable this feature.

Automatically create a control description frame on the map
When you create a new course, Condes will automatically place a control description on the map, if there isn't already a "for all courses" control description on the map.
Uncheck this option to disable this feature.

When Condes starts up

Open previous event at Condes start-up
When this option is checked, on startup Condes will open the event file that was opened the last time you closed Condes.

Auto-save backup-version of open files

Auto-save interval
This is the interval (in minutes) at which Condes will save your work in a backup copy of the file, which can be retrieved in case Condes restarts.

When the map file is updated

Automatic update when the map file changes
When this option is checked, Condes will update the map image whenever the map file changes, for example if you edit the OCAD map outside of Condes, while you keep Condes open.

Symbol palette

Symbol palette box width
This value controls the size of the symbol boxes in the symbol palette.

Changing the box size can be useful to better adjust the palette to your screen resolution.  Depending on the screen resolution, the symbols may look better when shown at a slightly different size than the default.

Status bar

Show longitude/latitude in status bar (when available)

Use this option to control how real world coordinates for the mouse cursor are shown in the status bar.
When this option is checked, Condes displays longitude/latitude.  When this option is unchecked, Condes displays the "raw" metric distance real world coordinates.  Real world coordinates are available only when the map is geo-positioned.
