  • Confirm on Cut/Delete: when this option is active, whenever the Cut or the Delete commands are issued on one or more elements, a confirmation message will be shown, prompting the user to confirm the action.
  • Show names on mouse move: when this option is active, whenever the mouse hovers over the elements on a page, a small Tool tip text will be displayed containing the name of the element underneath the mouse cursor. The name is set in the Position tab of each element settings dialog box.
  • Job load mode: when you select the Load job command and another job is currently opened, Labeljoy enables you to decide whether you want to Replace the current job with the one being loaded, add the job being loaded to the current one or force Labeljoy to ask you every time.
  • Show editor after item add: when this option is enabled and a new element is added to the job, Labeljoy will popup the corresponding editing dialog box.
