Window Descriptions : WebWorks ePublisher Preferences Window : General Tab (WebWorks ePublisher Preferences Window)
 
General Tab (WebWorks ePublisher Preferences Window)
This window allows you to specify the number of projects listed on the Start Page, the user interface language ePublisher Express or ePublisher Designer uses, and source document scan options. You can also use this window to reset the toolbar, reset dock positions, and clear the Do not ask again option.
If you are using ePublisher Designer, you can use this window to add a user format you created to the user format directory. A user format is a custom output format that you can create using XML and then use with your project. You can also use this window to specify if new projects allow user style overrides. An override is a change made with Document Designer to the preview of a single document. Overrides can be applied to a paragraph or a table, and an override supersedes any values or properties set in either the source document or in Style Designer. Overrides appear only in output. These overrides do not display in or affect the source document. Overrides cannot be saved to Stationery.
The fields are defined as follows:
Recent projects to remember (ePublisher Express and ePublisher Designer)
Specifies the number of projects to list on the Start Page. Click Clear List to clear the list of projects displayed on the Start Page.
User interface language (ePublisher Express and ePublisher Designer)
Specifies the language the ePublisher Express or ePublisher Designer user interface uses from the drop-down list. If you change the user interface language ePublisher Express or ePublisher Designer uses, you must close and then reopen the user interface before the language change you specified takes effect. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
English
Specifies English as the user interface language.
Deutsch
Specifies German as the user interface language.
Francais
Specifies French as the user interface language.
Scan added documents (ePublisher Express and ePublisher Designer)
Specifies when to scan source documents you add to a project. The scanning option you select will become the default selection for all existing projects, as well as all new projects you create. The default scan option is Never. When ePublisher scans source documents, it reads the style and formatting information, conditions, variables, and markers in your source documents. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Ask
Specifies that ePublisher prompt you to scan source documents when you add them to a project.
Always
Specifies that ePublisher always scans source documents when you add them to a project. When you select this option, ePublisher automatically scans your source documents for style and formatting information when you add new source documents to your project.
Never
Specifies that ePublisher does not scan source documents when you add them to a project. If you select this option, ePublisher will never scan your source documents unless you manually scan your source documents using one of the scanning commands on the Project menu.
User formats directory (ePublisher Designer only)
Specifies the location of any user formats you have created to add to the user formats directory and use to generate output. When you add user formats to the user formats directory, you can then apply the user formats you created when you create projects and generate output. The default location for user formats is C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\ePublisher Designer User Formats, where UserName is the name of the user account running ePublisher Designer.
New projects allow user style overrides in document previews by default (ePublisher Designer only)
Specifies whether to allow user style overrides in new projects you create. When you add overrides to the output in your project, ePublisher adds bookmarks to your Microsoft Word source documents. These bookmarks contain unique IDs that store override information and allow ePublisher to keep track of your overrides. These IDs are invisible and do not affect the functionality of your source documents.
If you clear this option, you cannot add overrides to your output, and you cannot use Document Designer. If you do not want ePublisher to add these unique ID bookmarks to your Microsoft Word documents, clear the check box.
If all paragraphs in your Microsoft Word documents use a style other than Normal and you do not plan on adding any overrides to your documents, you may want to deselect this option. While this setting affects all new projects you create, you can allow overrides to be added on an individual project basis by selecting the Allow user style overrides in document previews setting in the Project Settings window.
