Settings

Layout & Hotkeys

The Layout & Hotkeys tab lets you define a few settings related to appearance and behavior that are preserved across different ApSIC Xbench launches. The fields in this window are: Maximize on Startup. If you check this box, ApSIC Xbench will appear maximized when it is launched. It is recommended to check this box, as the maximized mode is the one that provides the maximum amount of information at the same time. »

Colors

The Colors tab lets you choose the font colors for the different priorities and also the background color for zoomed mode. In ApSIC Xbench there are two modes, overview, where only some relevant entries from each priority are shown, and the zoomed mode, where all the entries of a given priority are shown. This tab allows you to define the following settings: Background color when zoomed. This is the background color that is used in zoomed mode, as a visual indicator that you are not in overview mode (the default mode is overview). »

Internet

The Internet tab lets you define the pattern URLs that you use to perform targeted searches in the Internet, for example in a dictionary. You can have as many entries as you wish, but only the first 10 will have a hotkey assigned, either Alt+n within ApSIC Xbench or with Ctrl+Alt+n (with the numeric keypad in this latter case in Num Lock mode) from any Windows application. n can be a number from 0 to 9, where 0 means the 10th entry in the list. »

Miscellaneous

You can define here the following settings: Check weekly for new versions. If this check box is enabled, ApSIC Xbench will check once a week if there are updates available. Enable alternative project. If this check box is checked, ApSIC Xbench keeps in memory the project opened prior to the current one. To switch back and forth among both projects, choose Project->Switch to Alternative Project. To discard the alternative project and recall the memory used by it, choose Project->Forget Alternative Project. »

Studio Plugin

The Studio Plugin tab allows you to define settings that modify the behavior of the Xbench plugin for SDL Trados Studio. The settings available on this tab are: Add first local termbase.

The termbase will be assigned high priority in the Xbench project. Add first local translation memory. »
