Configuring Designer Options

Configuring Designer Options

You can configure how the Designer displays general information, tables, and tools. The Designer lets you specify display options including the background color of the tools, the organization of the navigator window, and the font used in different tools. You can also specify other options such as whether the Source Analyzer imports primary keys. Some changes require you to restart the Designer to apply the changes. The Designer warns you if you need to restart the program.
You can configure the following options in the Designer:
  • General.
    You can configure general display options, XML import, file directories, and the organization of the Navigator window.
  • Tables.
