General Settings

Default System

You can set the Field Track starting screen to auto select whichever interface you wish to use and the time delay before selecting it. The starting screen requires a time delay in case you may need to use the "Restore" function to recover your data.

XP Themes

A currently undeveloped system to better cope with XP and Themes. Still under development.

Tool Tips

Switch Window's Tool Tips off and on. Tool tips are little yellow hint fields that pop-up when your mouse is over a control, or button. They help you to learn about Field Track, but can become troublesome when you know what you are doing.

Flat Buttons

Many buttons in Field Track only appear when the mouse is over the button. You can force Field Track to display the edges of the buttons at all times.

Bubble Tool Tips

Switch on/off the fancy Tool Tips. If you have them on then you can tell Field Track where to display the hint bubble.

Tool Tip Timeout

How long a tool tip will display for. The default is 5000 milliseconds, which is 5 seconds.

Field Season Caption
