{{note|The following only applies to the GeoGebra Desktop Version.}}
==Defaults==
+
<br>
This part of the dialog lets you define properties of newly created objects. You can set properties for each object type separately, for points there are five subtypes. The way properties are set is similar to [[Properties Dialog]]
+
This dialog is available by selecting the [[Image:Menu_Properties_Gear.png|link=|18px]] ''Advanced'' item in [[Options Menu]], or by clicking the [[Image:Menu_Properties_Gear.png|link=|18px]] ''Preferences'' icon on the [[Toolbar]].
==Graphics==
+
It is divided into different sections, which are shown depending on active objects and Views: [[Image:Options-objects24.png|link=|18px]] ''Properties'', [[File:Menu view graphics.svg|link=|16px]] ''Graphics'', [[File:Menu view cas.svg|link=|16px]] ''CAS'', [[File:Menu view spreadsheet.svg|link=|16px]] ''Spreadsheet'', [[Image:Options-layout24.png|link=|18px]] ''Layout'', [[Image:Properties_defaults_3.png|link=|18px]] ''Defaults'', and [[Image:Options-advanced24.png|link=|18px]] ''Advanced''.
Allows you to set the zoom of graphics view, its axes and grid. See [[Customizing the Graphics View#Customizing Coordinate Axes and Grid|Customizing Coordinate Axes and Grid]] for details.
+
==[[Image:Options-objects24.png|link=]] Properties==
==Spreadsheet==
+
In this section the properties of objects can be changed. Clicking on the related icon displays the [[File:Menu-options.svg|link=|16px]] [[Properties Dialog]] of the object.
Allows you to show or hide the [[Input_Bar|inputbar]], gridlines, column/row header and scrollbars. You can also enable using buttons and checkboxes.
+
==[[File:Menu view graphics.svg|link=|22px]] Graphics==
==CAS==
+
This section is displayed only if the [[File:Menu view graphics.svg|link=|16px]] [[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.
Allows you to define a timeout for the [[CAS_View|CAS]] in seconds.
+
==[[File:Menu view cas.svg|link=|22px]] CAS==
==Advanced==
+
This section is displayed only if the [[File:Menu view cas.svg|link=|16px]] [[CAS View]] is active, and allows you to:
* ''Virtual Keyboard'': You can set the ''virtual keyboard language'' and the width/height of the virtual keyboard.
+
* set a timeout for the [[File:Menu view cas.svg|link=|16px]] ''CAS'' calculations, in seconds
* ''Tooltips'': You can set the ''tooltip language'' and a timeout for tooltips.
+
* set how to show rational exponents
* ''Language'': You can use digits and point names specified for your language.
+
==[[File:Menu view spreadsheet.svg|link=|22px]] Spreadsheet==
* ''Perspectives'': Here you can manage the perspectives of GeoGebra.
+
This section is displayed only if the [[File:Menu view spreadsheet.svg|link=|16px]] [[Spreadsheet View]] is active. Here you can customize the spreadsheet, setting preferences for the [[Input_Bar|input bar]], grid lines, column/row headers and scrollbars. You can also enable using buttons, checkboxes and tooltips.  
* ''Angle Unit'': Switch between ''Degree'' and ''Radians''
+
==[[Image:Options-layout24.png|link=]] Layout ==
* ''Continuity'': If Continuity is ''On'', GeoGebra tries to set new calculated points near the original ones.
+
This section allows you to customize the layout of the main components of your GeoGebra window, setting the position of the ''Input_Bar'', the [[Toolbar]], and the sidebar, as well as the [[Views#Style_Bar|Style Bar]] and title bar visibility.
