- It's always a good idea to take a look…at the preferences in a program.…It gives you a good idea of what sorts of things…you can control and things you may have missed.…So I want to take a look.…In this case we've seen some…of these things in other movies,…and we'll see someof them in more detail…in other movies that cover…the pro version of the software.…So I want to be careful here.…I'm using the trial version myself as you may also be.…So that is pro.…So we'll see certain things that if you are installed…with just the standard version you won't see.…
Here we are in preferences,…and in preferences we have some…buttons for different panes across the top.…You can read them out,…and I'm going to click on most of them.…In our general pane,…it's not a whole lot going on here.…Some things about the way Tab reacts…when we're editing.…You may have seen this in other programs…that both have text blocks…and have cells or different areas.…Is Tab going to act more like a typewriter tab,…or act more like a web browser tab?…
