There are several interface and export options, which are available under 'Options | Environment...' menu.

View

Button hints - check this item to view button hint, when mouse is over the button. If not checked, you still can view the hint in the left part of the status bar.

Column hints - check this item to view column hint, when mouse is over the column title. This hint shows the actual name and type of database field of the column.

Data hints - check this item to view data hint, when mouse is over the grid cell and text of the cell does not fit the cell. It is useful to view data of MEMO fields or long text data.

Flat tool buttons - check this item to change the 3D view of tool buttons in Exportizer interface.

Autodetect BLOB types - when this option is checked, Exportizer tries to detect the actual data type of BLOB fields in each record and show the data depending on this data type. Using this option may decrease performance, so it is not recommended for large BLOBs. Note, that Exportizer can automatically detect only several graphic formats (bitmap, metafile, icon, JPEG, GIF, PNG) and some other formats (for example, RTF) and only if the data contains all needed information for this.

Database

Case sensitivity in filter - check this item to specify that the literal strings in the filter are compared to string-valued fields case-sensitively. This option is meaningful only for BDE connections.

Partial comparing in filter - check this item to specify that the strings in filter condition that end in an asterisk signify a partial string match with the asterisk matching any number of characters. This option is meaningful only for BDE connections.

Confirmations

Creating schema for text table (if does not exist) - when this option is checked, and the user tries to open text table without the schema of field definitions, a prompt appears asking whether to create the schema.

Using Create_Or_Replace export mode - when this option is checked, and the user tries to export data using Create_Or_Replace export mode (which exports only structure), a prompt appears asking whether to continue with this export mode.

Miscellaneous

Suggest folder of source database - when this option is checked, the program in it's 'Save' dialog will suggest the folder of source database to export files to; otherwise, the default folder will be suggested (usually folder, where data were exported previous time); anyway, you can change the folder for exporting directly in the 'Save' dialog.
