Settings Dialog - General Tab
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
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
