85. About Preferences

Unlike roles, which are set up by the administrator for whole groups of users at a time, preferences are settings managed separately on each user's computer. Preferences may be changed by the administrator or the user. The settings are divided onto five different tabs in the Preferences dialog box:

  • Use the General tab to choose general options, such as what dictionary to use for spell-checking.

  • Use the File Editors tab to choose external programs to be used for editing certain file types managed within Contribute. For example, you can select an editing program for JPEG pictures; when you choose Edit Image from the pop-up menu for an image, that's the program that opens.

  • Use the Firewall tab to configure your company firewall settings into Contribute to avoid communication problems.

  • Use the Invisible Elements tab to choose whether to display section anchors as little flags when you're editing a page containing anchors.

  • Use the Security tab to set up a Contribute startup password.
