In this video, learn about system preferences and how they can be customized to fit individual needs and requirements.
- [Instructor] Throughout this course,…I will mostly be using the default settings and options…for Altium Designer.…However it's important to note…that our options and settings can really…be completely customized…to suit our own specific needs.…So if I ever need to change my options…or what we call our system preferences,…I can just go into the tools dropdown…and navigate to preferences.…
Here I have a whole number of options and settings…that I can customize to my own needs.…So for example, within our system preferences here,…maybe I can navigate to mouse wheel configuration,…and here I can just make changes…to what my mouse wheel may do…in terms of my navigation tools, for example.…If I want scrolling in to zoom in…or conversely, to zoom out,…and things of this nature.…Similarly, I can change these options and settings…for a whole number of things, as we can see here.…
So maybe I want to customize the settings…within my schematic editor.…So I can do things…like change the units here,…change how my wires may break at auto junctions,…
