Graph IDE ► Application ► Preferences
The Application-wide Preferences are accessed by the main menu Preferences or Status Bar Tools drop down button. The following is an explanation of each control on the Preferences editor.
Interface Theme : Sets the interface theme to one of original, flat or dark. The theme transforms immediately.
Number Of Recent Documents : Sets the number of recent documents to show in the recent document menu item.
Export Type : Specifies what happens when a representation is exported to another application. For the most part this should be set to the default of Destination which means the target application can query Graph IDE for the best representation.
Color Space : Determines the color space of the export. This should be left to RGB.
DPI : Determines the dots per inch of any resulting raster export.
Compression : Determines the compression amount of any resulting raster export.
This is applicable to the Chart Tasks interface when that interface is available. See Chart Tasks for additional information.
Does Use Standalone Inspectors : When checked, the inspector for a chart task is a standalone window, otherwise it is a sheet.
Custom Cloud Host Name
Custom Cloud Host Name : A DNS host that provides cloud service. If an entry is provided then it will appear in the host entries for the Login editor. The entry must be a valid DNS name for example www.vvi.com, www.local or any entry that your domain name service can lookup.
Peer Visual Server
Server Type : Set to Network Server to start the internal network server or No Server to not start the server. See Server for additional information.
Server Log Type : Sets the level of logging for the server. Since the server logs always goes to stdout and stderr the log only make sense when those system logs can be accessed.
Visuals1 : Select if you wish the server to vend visual results based upon SOA requests. In other words, make graphs for clients.
Cloud Accounts1 : Select if you wish client Graph IDE applications to Login to the server (and save documents on the server).
Cloud Administration1 : Select if you wish client Graph IDE applications to Administer cloud accounts on the server. It is recommended that you leave this unchecked unless you are actively adding or modifying cloud accounts.
Administrative1 : Select if you wish the server to respond to administrative queries. This should probably be left off unless there is an explicit need for it.
Cached Results1 : Select if you wish the server to cache results for later retrieval. This should probably be left off unless there is an explicit need for it.
Distributed Compiler1 : Select if you wish the server to act as a SOA distributed compiler and execution engine. This should probably be left off unless there is an explicit need for it.
