Navigation:  Part 2: DeltaGUI Software > Setting DeltaGUI Preferences > DeltaGUI User Interface >


This dialog page allows the user interface to be customised:

Resource Window Columns
In the resource window (left side of DeltaGUI), you can have optional columns showing the drive letter, extra information such as image size or audio format or which timeline a resource is on for timeline resources.

Active timeline Indicators
The timeline play and autoplay indicators in the bottom status bar default to being simply LED indicators – if you enable this checkbox, those LEDs become toggle switches to play/stop each timeline or autoplay state.

Saves this server's current file at the specified interval (if not playing a show).

GUI Startup password
Type in a password which will be requested any time DeltaGUI is started. Note that this password is stored in plain text in the registry

Intelligent resources
If enabled, a set of behaviours is added which help minimise time to create a show: These are only used when you add a new resource to the timeline, they do not affect existing resources on the timeline.
