Setting user preferences

  1. From the Edit menu, select User Preferences. The Edit User Preferences dialog box appears.

  2. Select the General tab.

  3. In the Startup Display field, enter the name and path of the analysis display you want to open automatically when a user logs in. If you do not know the name and path of the analysis display, use the Browse button to locate a display and double-click the file name to select it. You can also set this default from the system tree. See To set a display as the default display from the system tree.

  4. NOTE: The startup display preference overrides the application-wide startup display preference that may already be set. This preference takes effect the next time you log in.

  5. From the Positioning area, select the positioning for duplicated objects . For example, to position a duplicated object to the left of the original object, select the Left button.

  6. Specify the spacing you want between the original and duplicated objects by completing the Horizontal and Vertical fields. For example, to space duplicated objects 20 pixels horizontally and 30 vertically away from the original object, enter these values in the Horizontal and Vertical fields, respectively.

  7. If necessary, select the Delete local cache files check box. Use this option to ensure synchronization with the Proficy Portal server, and to ensure that you can see all data sources that you have access to. After the cache files are deleted, this option is reset so that the cache files are not removed each time you start Proficy Portal.

  8. Select the Regional Settings tab. Clear the Use Default Regional Settings check box if you want to make changes to user-specific regional settings. The settings on this tab (with the exception of Language) are the same as Default Regional Settings. Refer to To configure default regional settings.

  9. Click OK.
