General Settings

1. General Settings
 
The General settings control various options that are specific to the application itself.
 
Save Window State On Program Exit
Selecting this option tells the application to remember the various aspects of the window state when exiting so that they may be recalled the next time the application is started.
 
Check For Updates When Program Starts
Selecting this option allows SOFTBOX (HDRI) to check online for a more recent version of the software the first time it is started on any given day. If an updated version is available the Check for Updates window will be launched and you can choose whether or not to download and install the update at that time.
 
Automatically Backup Database On Program Exit
Selecting this option tells the application to backup the database each time it closes. The application will keep the ten most recent automatic backups and automatically remove the oldest during each backup operation. However, manual backups can only be removed manually. See the Backup Manager for more information.
 
Automatically Update Browser When Searching
Selecting this option tells the application to update search results in the HDRI Media Browser each time a filter button is pressed. This way the user doesn't have to press the Search button each time to update the search results.
 
Save Search Settings On Program Exit
Selecting this option tells the application to remember the filter settings and results from the last HDRI Media Browser search so that they may be recalled the next time the application is started.
