Ban user from configuring printed catalog
The Catalog let your clients print a full-color paper-based catalog off your CD and select certain catalog items to be printed. Before printing, you can set up the printed document appearance. By selecting this option you can disable users to make any changes to the printed document appearance and thus ensure printing the catalog with just your requisites and contact information, original prices, etc. If you are distributing the CD among your dealers, you better not select this option since printed papers with information on products origin may often confuse partners such document cannot be presented to an end customer.

Ban user Export printed forms.
The program provides means for exporting all forms being used from the browse mode to just about any format. You can disable this feature to users.

Do not use icons.

Use as Smart-Price.
When this option is activated, the Catalog displays no images or descriptions, and the list of items expands to the entire screen width. This option is useful if you are planning to upload your compressed catalog to the Internet to update price lists in other formats. All benefits of an electronic catalog are preserved including convenience, updates, entry / printing / submitting orders, etc. while keeping the total size much smaller.

Display priority to item description section. When user selects a certain item on the list of items, the lower section displays brief information on that item, and the right section (by default) displays the item's main image (if available; or 'No Image' otherwise.) If you do not want to use images or if item DESCRIPTION is more important, do select this option. By default, text section will appear with item description.
If you are going to avoid using both images and descriptions, select the option Use as Smart-Price

Display main image in 1:1 scale by default
Display additional image in 1:1 scale by default
To Remember last mode of display.

By default, images are scaled to fit the entire image area (more on displaying imagesphoto_rezim@help.hlp). You can change this mode for the first and the second photographs individually. For instance, for the first photograph you can use scaling while for the second photograph (diagrams, charts) you can use the 'as is' (1:1) scaling.

Allow floating value in order quantity

Select this option if your products allow floating units (e.g., 1.5 kg)

Wrap words in Notes automatically

Enables the automatic wrapping of words in the description block. Select the best state of the flag for the correct appearance of texts and tables in the additional description.

Use mosaic for group titles

If no image is assigned to a subgroup of products, setting this flag will enable displaying the mosaic of 4 photographs of products within the subgroup.
You can set up to three ways of displaying folders.

  • Set a photograph the same way as for individual products (e.g., subject-oriented collage). The photo will be displayed despite the mosaic setting (Fig.1)
  • Do not set any photograph; this way,
    • If the mosaic mode is disabled, the "No image" label will appear (Fig.2)
    • If the mosaic mode is enabled, 4 photos of products within the group will be displaued (Fig.3)
If you do not have any highly artistic, quality collages for each group, it's better to enable the mosaic mode. Where it's possible (e.g. when you're selling individual components for a kitchen furniture set), select a photograph of an individual object for the subgroup, and the gallery mode will be ignored for it.
image example in the catalog

Background adjusts automatically to match image color

The image background will be filled with the color of the bottom-left pixel of the photograph. In the majority of cases, this makes the photos most pleasant for viewing.

Number of lines in the drop-down list of groups.
Used for setting the maximum number of lines to display when selecting a group of items. If number of groups is greater than this value, a scrollbar will appear at the right of the list. This makes sense for great numbers of groups. If the list is rather small (5-7 groups), it is recommended to purposely set a greater value. Thus the list will appear without the scrollbar, which should make it more convenient to users.
