If the document does not specify its encoding, you can manually specify the encoding of the document's text from the following supported encodings:
For a document that does not specify its encoding, iSilo™ assumes the windows-1252 Western European encoding. Only documents in iSilo™ 4.x document format have the ability to specify their own encoding, which would have been specified at conversion time.
If the document does specify its encoding, then this field shows Specified by document and you can not manually specify a different encoding. You can determine the document's encoding through the Document Information dialog.
Note that proper support for the display of text in the chosen encoding is necessary from the operating system or a third party program that adds such support in order for iSilo™ to display the text. Most systems support at least the windows-1252 Western European encoding.
Please note the following:
The window is divided into four tap regions. Each region's size and action when tapped is configurable. The left part of the Region tab page allows you to change the size of each region and the right side allows you to change the scroll behavior for each region when tapped.
A tap region can vary in size. You can change the sizes of the regions by dragging up or down the horizontal lines that separate the regions.
While dragging a separator line, it appears as a gray line until you release it. Dragging a single separator line only changes the division of space between the two regions that the line separates, so you may have to change the position of more than one separator line to get your desired region sizes.
The region actions determine the scroll behavior when the region is tapped. These are the available actions:
Creating a new color theme
Tap New to create a new color theme. In the Edit Color Theme dialog that appears after tapping New, enter into the Name field a unique name for the color theme. Tap Text and Background to select the text and background colors, respectively, for the color theme.
Modifying a color theme
To modify a color theme, first select the name of the color theme from the list, then tap Edit. In the Edit Color Theme dialog that appears, change the Name field if desired to a new unique name for the color theme. Tap Text and Background to change the text and background colors, respectively, of the color theme.
Deleting a color theme
To delete a color theme, first select the name of the color theme from the list, then tap Delete. iSilo™ asks you to confirm that you want to delete the selected color theme before actually doing so.
If you tend to keep a lot of documents around, you may want to increase the limit. If you are tight on space and do not care so much about the local settings of documents you have not viewed recently, then you may want to decrease the limit. The actual size of a local settings file currently depends mostly on how many local bookmarks you have created for the document. However, a rough estimate of the size of a typical local settings file might be anywhere from half a kilobyte to one kilobyte. Using this rough estimate, a limit of 100KB should allow for at least the saving of the local settings for the last 100 documents you have viewed.
Documents in iSilo™ format generally have a file extension of .pdb and rarely, but sometimes, .prc. Palm Doc documents also generally have a file extension of .pdb and sometimes .prc. You can associate either, both, or neither of these extensions with iSilo™.
For each extension that you associate with iSilo™, if you tap on a file with such an extension within the File Explorer program, then it will start iSilo™ with that document.
Please note that iSilo™ does not understand how to read all files with the extension .pdb or .prc. The .pdb extension is generally used to denote files that have the Palm database top-level organizational structure. But what kind of data and how it is stored within this top-level structure is application dependent.
While in trial or registered mode, you can use the Free mode option to turn free mode on and off to see what that mode is like.
During the 30-day trial period, you can use the Show trial period reminder option to enable or disable the messages that let you know how many days you have left in your trial period.
