The Preferences dialog lets you customize EQ Mini. After choosing Preferences from the FILE menu, the Preferences dialog appears.
Use this section of the Preferences dialog to turn the Startup features on and off. Uncheck whichever item you want to turn off.
The default measurement setting is inches. Changing this option will automatically update the quilt rulers.
If you’ve saved a project with the default inches, then changed the measurement to centimeters, EQ does not convert your project from inches to centimeters. Since this project was designed in inches, when you reopen and try to print the quilt or block, it will not be what you expect.
For example, if you have a 54 inch quilt, when you change this setting to centimeters, you will now have a 54 centimeter quilt.
Each time you color a block and add it to the Sketchbook, the new coloring gets stacked on top of the previous coloring. Change this number if you’d like fewer colorings per block. If you don’t want the colorings to stack at all, enter 1 in the input box.
Choose how many times you can undo repeatedly. The allowable values are from 2-20.
Increase this number if lines on your printouts aren’t printing as bold as you’d like. Putting this option at its maximum value will help faint seam allowance lines print more boldly. Allowable values: 1-4
File Saving Options:
The following options pertain to the actual project (*.EQM) files.
Check Ask before deleting any design to display a warning dialog box every time you want to delete a design. This dialog will ask you if you want to delete your design before it actually is deleted, in case you really didn’t want it deleted. This option is turned on by default.
Check Provide audio feedback to hear an audio alert when adding to the Sketchbook. Uncheck this option to turn off the sound.
