OmniMarkz Preferences General

Show Welcome Window on Launch

When enabled the Welcome Window shows whenever you restart. If Disabled, no window will appear when you startup OmniMarkz, so Drag-and-Drop is not immediately available, BUT, you can simply do a Command-O to select a file.

Enable Finder Thumbnail Previews

This preference only affects InDesign files. When enabled, activates a macOS Quick Look Plug-in that will change your file icon for InDesign files to a miniature thumbnail of the document. Some people like this and other do not. If you change the file icon, then at a glance it is more difficult to tell which files are InDesign files. In order for this feature to work, it you enable this checkbox, you will need to reboot your computer . In addition it could take several minutes for the macOS to activate and apply the changes to file icons on your computer.

Prefer Tabs when opening documents

Selecting this will open all documents in a single tabbed window. This may be helpful in keeping your screen organized if you open several documents at one time. You can always remove a document from the tabbed window by either dragging its tab outside the tabbed window or using the “move tab to new Window” Menu item under the Window menu.

Show Inspector Panel

If this Preference is enabled, whenever you open a file in OmniMarkz, the Inspector Panel will automatically open along with the file. If you open several files at one time and do not have the “Prefer tabs when opening documents” Preference enabled, this could get a bit messy on screen. Once the file is open you can always tap Command-I to toggle the Inspector Panel on or off for that file.

Display Units

You can select a specific unit, or if you select “Document Settings”, OmniMarkz will display the page size using the units the file was created with. By default this is set to “Document Settings”.

Animation Speed

Adjusts the time it takes to stabilize the display of a page when moving between pages of a multipage document while Previewing a document. Some people prefer instantaneous previews when switching between pages, some may prefer a slower transition similar to how pages on a smartphone may display.

Default Save/Open Path:

Select one of the radio buttons

Previously Used

Your default Save/Open path will always be the last path you used to Open a document

Document Path

Your default Save/Open path will always be the same location as the document you open

Absolute Path

When you enable this radio button the Choose a Path selection box becomes active. Click in this box and a window pops up asking you to select a custom path. This can be handy if you have a hot-folder and always want to save files into the hot folder.

Reset Preferences (button)

Resets the OmniMarkz Preferences back to the factory default settings.
