This dialog is available via the Settings... item in Options Menu. It is divided into five parts: Defaults, Graphics, Spreadsheet, CAS and Advanced.


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


Allows you to set the zoom of graphics view, its axes and grid. See Customizing Coordinate Axes and Grid for details.


Allows you to show or hide the inputbar, gridlines, column/row header and scrollbars. You can also enable using buttons and checkboxes.


Allows you to define a timeout for the CAS in seconds.
