Settings Dialog - General Tab

General Tab of Word Batch Replacer Settings Dialog

Allow only one program instance — this option, when on, prevents the Word Batch Replacer from starting another instance if already running. Instead, when an attempt to launch Word Batch Replacer again is detected, the already-running instance will be brought to the foreground. This is the recommended behavior, enabled by default, since the replacement process involves using MS Word, which consumes system resources. Although possible, multiple replacement processes may bring Windows to an “out of resources” state. You can override this setting via the command line.

Remember last used property page in dialogs — setting this option on will force the program to open both “Processing Options” and “Settings” dialogs on the last-used tab.

Save project on exit without prompt — if you set this option on, Word Batch Replacer will automatically save the current project on exit without displaying a confirmation dialog with the “Yes”, “No,” and “Cancel” buttons.

Show hints on buttons in toolbar—such hints may be helpful to novice users, so this option is on by default. As you become more familiar with the Word Batch Replacer user interface, the hints might become annoying, and you may want to disable them.

Processing Log File is a file to write the processing log to. The processing log will include the same strings as displayed on the Processing Log tab of the Info Pane in the main program's window.

Check for updates automatically is an option that lets you be informed about the latest releases of Word Batch Replacer. It is advisable to set this option on, so that you can receive all bug fixes and recent features as soon as they become available.

All Word Batch Replacer settings are stored in the “settings.ini” file located in the "Word Batch Replacer" subfolder of the user’s Application Data folder. To open the this subfolder, type “%appdata%\Word Batch Replacer” (without quotes) in the Windows Explorer address bar.
