Default folder for event files

This is the location in the directory tree where Condes will place event files (.wcd).  When saving an event file, you can specify a different location.

Default folder for map files

This is the location in the directory tree where Condes will look for map files.  When opening a map file, you can specify a different location.

Control descriptions symbol file

This is the file name of the symbol file.  The symbol file contains the names and the graphics of the control descriptions symbols.

By default, this file is named "WCONSYMS2004.DAT" and is located in the same folder as the Condes program file.   This file is read-only and you cannot change the contents of this file.

If you want to modify the symbol title or the graphics of a symbol, you need to use your own symbol file.   This dialog has three buttons to control the symbol file:

    1. "Use Condes standard symbol file".  Select this option to reset and use Condes standard symbol file.
    2. "Use my own symbol file -- copy the Condes standard symbol file to your own location".  Use this option if you want to start from the standard file and modify a symbol.  Condes copies the standard file to a new location, where you can modify the file.
    3. "Use my own symbol file -- select an existing file on the disk".  Use this option if you already have an existing symbol file on your disk, which you want to use.

To modify a symbol title or symbol graphics, first make sure to "use my own symbol file", then close any open Condes event file, and use the Symbols menu to modify symbols.
