options

You can change settings for numerous options using the Options dialog. To access the Options dialog, first make sure you have a document open, then in the Tools menu, click Options. The Options dialog divides the options into the following categories:


Display

Use the Display tab of the Options dialog to specify display settings. It has the following fields:

Please note the following:


Scroll

Use the Scroll tab of the Options dialog to change scroll behavior. It has the following fields:


Region

Use the Region tab of the Options dialog to change the behavior when clicking on different areas of the window.

The window is divided into four click regions. Each region's size and action when clicked 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 clicked.

Regions
A click region can range in size from 8% to 76% of the total height used to display text. 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.

Region Action
The region actions determine the scroll behavior when the region is tapped. These are the available actions:


Font

Use the Font tab of the Options dialog to set the specific font to use for individual font families. It has the following fields:

Note: If you are viewing a document in iSilo™ format, changing the Default family font will likely not do anything since content in such documents generally specify some font. So to actually effect a change in the fonts used for documents in iSilo™ format, you will want to modify one or more of the Serif, Sans Serif, and/or Monospace family fonts, depending on which are actually used by the document.


Color

Use the Color tab of the Options dialog to select and edit color themes. Selecting a color theme forces all text and background colors of the current document to those of the selected color theme. Select No color theme to have the document display normally. Each document can have an individual color theme setting.

Creating a new color theme
Click 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. Click 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 click Edit. In the Edit Color Theme dialog that appears, change the Name field if desired to a new unique name for the color theme. Click 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 click Delete. iSilo™ asks you to confirm that you want to delete the selected color theme before actually doing so.

Note: The Color tab is only available when a document is open.
