specified sample spacing for the export, the sample spacing will be adjusted to be slightly smaller
rather than the default of adjusting the export bounds up to the next sample spacing boundary.
Use Current Screen Bounds by Default when Exporting - if checked, this option specifies that the
default choice on the Export Bounds tab when exporting should be to use the current screen bounds
rather than exporting all loaded data.
BIL Format: Ask if 16-bit Files are Imagery - if checked, this option will cause the user to be
prompted to choose whether 16-bit BIL files that are encountered are elevation or imagery files. If not
checked, any 16-bit BIL files will be assumed to be elevation files.
DGN: Import Cells as Point Features - if checked, this option causes cell features in DGN v8 and
later files that have an associated point location to just be loaded as a single point feature rather than
the collection of features specified by the cell.
DGN: Add DGN Color Number to Feature Description - if checked, this option causes the DGN
color number for each feature to be appended to the feature description/level number.
DXF/DWG: Import INSERT entities as point features - if checked, this option specifies that the
content of INSERT entities (i.e. blocks) in DXF and DWG files should be loaded as a single point
feature at the location of the INSERT.
DXF/DWG: Create New Types from Layers - if checked, this option will cause new Global
Mapper types to automatically be created for every DXF/DWG layer name encountered for which a
Global Mapper type does not already exist.
Show Pixel Location in Status Bar - if checked, this option causes the native pixel location of the
topmost raster or gridded elevation file to be displayed in the status bar as you move the cursor around
in addition to the color and/or elevation data.
Use DOS Character Set for Default Label Fonts - if checked, this option specifies that default
display label fonts should use the OEM character set (code page 437) rather than the ANSI character
set (code page 1252). This option can be helpful if you are having problem with accented characters
not displaying correctly from some data sets (those data sets encoded in code page 437 rather than
Use Path to First Loaded File as Default Export Path - if checked, this option specifies that when
exporting a new file, the default export path will be the path of the first loaded file during this session
rather than the path to the last exported file in any session.
Use CR/LF in World Files (TFW) Instead of LF - if checked, this specifies that lines in generated
world files will be terminated using a carriage return (CR) and linefeed (LF) character as is customary
on Windows systems rather than just a LF character. Use this if your world files are not being
recognized by your Windows-based applications.
Automatically Create Backup Copies of Workspace Files - if checked, this option will cause your
current workspace file to automatically be backed up every so often (i.e. after so many vector edits,
etc.). These backup copies will be created in the same folder as the workspace file and have the suffix
"auto_backupX", where X is a number from 0 to 9.
Lock Active Workspace File to Prevent Sharing - if checked, this option prevents other users from
opening and using the same workspace file that you are using while you have it open. This is useful in
network environments where you don't want one person's work to accidentally overwrite anothers. If
you try to open a locked workspace, it will automatically be opened in read-only mode, which will
prevent you from overwriting the original workspace file when saving.
Center on Cursor when Zooming with Mouse Wheel - when this option is checked (or when
holding down Ctrl) and you rotate the mouse wheel over the map, the map will zoom in and out and
maintain the location under your cursor at the same location rather than just zooming in and out on the
current screen center.
Export: Keep Pixel if any Part is Inside Crop Area - when this option is checked and you are
cropping a raster/elevation export to a selected area feature, an exported pixel/cell will be kept if any
corner of that cell is within the crop area rather than the default requirement of the center of the cell
being in the crop area.
