Preferences and Settings

Overview

The settings determine many aspects of the application, from metadata template forms to the resulting metadata formats. You can also define many default values which will be applied when you create a new METS file through the application.

Scope of Preferences

All of the application and metadata preferences are user-specific; if you have multiple users using the same application on the same machine, they can all have different defaults. The settings are stored in the user's Isolated Storage application settings location in XML format.

Setting Your Preferences

Your preferences are set in two ways:

These two methods are very analogous and often present a very similar looking interface, although the look and feel may vary slightly.
