All options realted to the appearance of the Quaestor GUI .


Things you can select or deselect are:

  • "Show ToolTips", enables you to swich off the ToolTips in Quaestor;
  • "Show commas in numbers 12,500.00", enables to show comma's as delimiter for thousands in numbers. Please note that it only relates to the presentation of values! For input you should consider the delimiter for ranges. When you have choosen a comma as delimiter between values, using a comma will cause a definition of multi-case values. When the semi-colon is used as delimiter, providing a comma in a value will simply be ignored. So in that case, providing 1,000 will be accepted as 1000. But 1,0 is also accepted as 10!
