Options-objects24.png Properties

In this section the properties of objects can be changed. Clicking on the related icon displays the Menu-options.svg Properties Dialog of the object.

Menu view graphics.svg Graphics

This section is displayed only if the Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View is active and allows you to define its settings, e.g. background colour, axes and grid. See Customizing the Graphics View for further details.

Menu view cas.svg CAS

This section is displayed only if the Menu view cas.svg CAS View is active, and allows you to:

  • set a timeout for the Menu view cas.svg CAS calculations, in seconds
  • set how to show rational exponents

Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet

This section is displayed only if the Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet View is active. Here you can customize the spreadsheet, setting preferences for the input bar, grid lines, column/row headers and scrollbars. You can also enable using buttons, checkboxes and tooltips.
