This Preferences page allows you to view and edit display preferences.
• Background Preview Panel — sets the color for the background of the Preview panel. Requires restart to take effect.
• Shadow Warning — sets the shadow and highlight warning level. Values below the Shadow Warning level and above the Highlight Warning level will be highlighted when Clipping Warning is enabled.
• Maximum number of images in Multi-Image View — controls how many images will be shown at any one time in Multi-Image View.
• EXIF Viewer uses Metadata Set — lets you choose which metadata set you want to show in the metadata pop-up window.
• Display formats for dates — sets a default date format for the application.
• Metadata viewer updates on mouse over — resets the viewer each time you position your pointer over another image.
• Use round shape for Magnifier (uncheck for rectangle) — use a round (enabled) or rectangular (disabled) magnifier. Switch to a rectangle for a slightly larger magnifier, and to prevent display issues on Linux systems when desktop compositing is disabled.
• Highlight Alternating Rows — in list views, like the Catalog section and Metadata Browser section of the Browse panel, highlight alternating rows. Disable for uniform row colors. Requires restart to take effect.
• Use smaller fonts and icons — Enable this on notebooks and netbooks to make workspace elements smaller. Requires restart to take effect.
• Maintain zoom when switching images — lets you pan and zoom into a single image, and then keep that zoom and pan position when switching images. This only affects Single Image view.
• Use animation for image zoom — enables animation when zooming in or out on images. Disable this on slower computers for quicker viewing.
• Show only high quality previews — enabling this preference will prevent Corel AfterShot Pro from showing lower quality previews when making image adjustments — which can make the previewing process take slightly longer.
