From PanelForge 2 Documentation

The 'Project Panel View Settings' window provides the options to adjust many visual setting that will be used throughout the current Project. Most options will produce instant visual feedback. Where options require regeneration of certain data this process will be described.

This settings window can be accessed via the 'Project->Project Settings->Panel View...' main menu item when a Project is open in PanelForge.

Any changes made to settings in this window are not undoable. It may be advisable to create an archived copy of the current project when regeneration of a large amount of data is required.



The following options apply to many areas of a PanelForge Project. It is advised to adjust these options first after creating a 'New Project' to avoid data having to be regenerated:


Canvas Preview Resolution

The resolution used for each Panel's preview in various PanelForge user interface elements. These include the Panel preview during 'Playback' or 'Scubing' of the Project timeline and Panel 'Thumbnail' previews used in the 'Panel Timeline' and 'Panel Thumbnails' Palettes.

Under normal circumstances, the default of '50%' should not be modified.

Canvas Background Colour

The colour used as the background for the Panel's Canvas view and any corresponding exports of the Panel's Canvas. Clicking on the colour box will display a 'Colour Picker' Window.

Changing this colour will not cause the existing Panel Canvas Previews to be updated.
