Program options

The program has number of configuration options that you can adjust from the Settings menu:


Set program font

Settings > Set Font.. option allows you to increase or decrease font size, or select font type from the list of fonts available in the operating system. You can also use the Font drop-down list in the right top corner of the program.

TIP: The easiest way to increase or decrease the font size is to scroll mouse wheel up or down while holding Ctrl key.


Set style

You can adjust program appearance to your taste by changing the Style option in the drop-down list in the right top corner of the program.

Backup

Here you can specify if you want to backup program database automatically (this option is ON by default), how frequently, location of the backup files, and maximum number of backup files in the selected backup folder. Older backup files that exceeded the max. number of files will be automatically deleted at the time of scheduled auto-backup.

Editor options

When "Run in view-only mode" checked, you will not be able to edit any contacts. This option may be suitable for some companies where only person is allowed to keep the database records.
Other options help you editing/entering a large number of contacts by automatically turning entered text in the correct case.
For example, when "Leading UPPERCASE in First and Last Name" is checked and you enter the name as 'sarah o'connor', it will be automatically changed to 'Sarah O'Connor'. That way, with proper setup you will not need to use Shift key on the keyboard.
Here you can also specify default State/Province/County and Country that will be automatically populated in a new contact
