So...what can I do under the TOOLS, OPTIONS menu?

By Aaron Taylor

If you are the kind of person that likes to dig into all the options and preference windows in the software you work with, then you may have already poked around a bit in the TOOLS-OPTIONS section of MusicMaster.

If not, I want to encourage you to do so when you have a few minutes!

This time, I want to touch on just two areas of the TOOLS-OPTIONS section this time, and we'll go over others in subsequent posts for sure...

First on the list here, Program Options-Language/Regional, is where you can make many of your MusicMaster menus appear in English, Spanish, French, German, Polish or Portuguese if you wish)...Many of our bilingual users LOVE to change this setting! 

Next, the options for "Dataset Options", and I really wanted to highlight "Dataset Identification" this time.

This is where you'll want to go if you want to:

1) Change the call letters or slogan that appears in your database.
2) Select a mp3 or Wav file that will play when you open up this particular database (another cool way to personalize your database!)
3 ) Select a station logo or other graphic to center or wallpaper on the opening screen of a particular database (make sure the .jpg or other graphic isn't monster sized and this should fit). (Very Cool!)
4)Change the color scheme for the database opening screen (first color you pick will show at the top of the screen, the second at the bottom, they "blend" together in the middle)...If you've got a good eye for color, you can get some great combos working here, (me...not so much!)

As you see, this list goes on under "Dataset options", but I will save some of those for another time!

There are tons of cool options/settings to play with here, and if you ever have questions about "what does this menu choice do?" and you'd like to chat about it, please get in touch!
