User preferences

the MADCAT can manage user preferences for the following elements :

  • a database
  • a tool
  • a renderer

When one of these items afford user settings, they are accessed through the configuration panel of MADCAT :

The user clicks on the element and the settings attached to it are displayed in a form the user can edit.

User settings are saved in a binary file which is stored in the folder "Application Data/MADCAT" of the Windows user folder "Document and settings".
