An Overview of the Settings Menu

Meet the Settings Menu

As you discover how you work best within Scriptation, you can always customize the interface from within the Settings menu.

To access Settings, tap the File Browser.

At the bottom of the window, tap Settings, and the Settings menu appears.

What do all these options mean? Let's go through them from the top.

Page Mode
