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

View

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

Column hints - set this option 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 - set this option 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 - set this option to change the 3D view of tool buttons in Exportizer interface.

Autodetect BLOB types - when this option is set, 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.

Show Memo (long text) data - when this option is set, Exportizer always shows content of Memo fields in data grids; otherwise, the data of such fields can be shown either when the mouse is over the data cell or when the height of rows in the grid is increased. Using this option may decrease performance when browsing large tables.

Database

Use live data window when possible - This option controls the memory using when moving through the open table data (scrolling the grid or exporting). When it is not set (default), then scrolling the table down causes memory usage to increase; for huge tables, it can sometimes cause the out of memory error. When it is set, then only current screen of records is kept in memory, and memory usage does not increase when scrolling the table; but this mode increases the database workload and slows down performance. it is recommended to use this option only when you cannot export a huge table due to memory errors. This option works for FD connections only. You can use it only for tables with primary key and cannot use for your SQL queries.

Case sensitivity in filter - set this option to specify that the literal strings in the filter are compared to string-valued fields case-sensitively. This option does not work for ADO connections.

Partial comparing in filter - set this option 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 does not work for ADO connections.

Trim trailing spaces - specify either to trim trailing spaces and control characters when working with data aware controls (e.g. grids). This option affects only char and varchar data.

Confirmations

Creating schema for text table (if does not exist) - when this option is set, 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 set, 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 set, 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 last used folder); anyway, you can change the folder for exporting directly in the Save dialog.

Automatically check for updates - when this option is set, the program will automatically check for updates. It requires Internet connection to check for updates.
