In the Program options window, several technical options are possible for the accounting file.

Interface Tab


The Program Language is the language used by the program. Use this drop-down menu to select a language if the user wants to use a language different from the default or if the default is not available.

Font type
This drop-down menu allows the user to select the desired font.

If the user wants the data on the table to be shown in another size, adjust the percentage of Zoom here.

Show negative numbers in red
The negative numbers and amounts will be shown in red in the tables.


Check for updates
This option establishes a connection to the SA website and checks if there is an update compared to the version that is used.

Display start page
The news start page is shown.

Show recently used files
In the File menu, all the most recently used files are listed.


Editor Tab


Edit table with single click
By activating this option, a single click on the selected cell is sufficient to enter in the modification mode. If the function is not activated, you have to double-click on the cell in order to enter in the modification mode.

Autocomplete text
By activating this option, the program automatically selects the first draft text in the drop down list and automatically fills it in the line where you are.

Add up during selection
By activating this option, the program will add up the selected amounts. Deactivate this function if this instantaneous addition slows certain operations down. One can select non-adjacent amounts by holding down the Ctrl key while selecting individual cells with the left mouse button.


Maximum number of undo operations
Insert the maximum number of undo operations (one at a time) when using the Undo command from the Edit menu.

Smart fill rows limit
When inserting data, the program reads the data that has already been entered and tries to suggest how to complete an entry. In cases where there are many rows, this function could slow down the process.
The user can define a limit for the number of rows, above which the smart fill will not be used. If there is no value entered or zero, smart fill will always be used.

Autocomplete Text
If this function is activated, the program will automatically select the first text proposal of the drop down list and enter it in the selected row.


Advanced Tab


Autosave (in minutes)
This option allows saving the file automatically according to the desired frequency (in minutes). The program saves the data in a file called auto backup + file name. If the program or the computer crashes, the data can be recuperated by opening this file and saving it with a name (Save as...) from the File menu.

Create backup copy (.bak)
When the user saves to disk using the same name, the version of the file that already existed is renamed with a .BAK extension.

Files extension

Extensions of files considered secure
This option defines the file types that the software consents to open with a double click on the DocLink column of the Transactions table. This prevents from opening non-secure files by the program.

Restore Defaults
If some settings have been altered, by using this button, the default settings will be restored.
