Program: Projects
When selecting the compression level, you are deciding how much storage space will be allocated for each one of your projects. In other words, you are deciding on how quickly the storage is performed. A lower level saves the projects faster, a higher level reduces the amount of storage space available on your hard disc.

Program: Undo
With the option “save undo steps in projects”, you can save all undo steps within the project file. The undo-steps will then be completely reproduced when the file is opened. This creates a significantly larger project file. Set the maximum number of undo steps (1, 5, 10, 20 or 50). If you do not wish to set a maximum, select “unlimited”.

The minimum free disk space specifies the amount of free space on your hard drive that will not be taken up by saving undo steps. This ensures the proper functioning of your operating software. By default, this is set to 10% of your hard disk capacity but can be increased or decreased accordingly.

Program: Preview Mode
In preview mode you can choose between the modes “optimal” and “quick”. With the “optimal” mode activated, the preview size is adapted to the size of the original image. It guarantees maximum preview quality. If the “quick” mode is activated, the preview size is reduced to half of that of the original image. This guarantees you the highest possible speed in preview mode. Moreover, you can set the size of your preview area in megapixels if you have not selected optimal or quick mode). Select a high value if you have a very
fast computer.
