Configuring Users Preferences in Spotfire

  • Have you ever wanted to make “permanent” changes to Spotfire based on your preferences?
  • Have you ever “lost” calculated columns?
  • Is repeated formatting frustrating?

Configuring User Preferences

If you answered yes, then watch this video on configuring user preferences.  This week, I worked with several users who were unaware of the variety of settings and options available in the Tools > Options menu.  When I showed them what to change, they were shocked at what they had been missing.  Therefore, I created a quick video demonstrating which settings to change in the Tools > Options menu.

When changes are made via Tools > Options, the current analysis session is not affected but all future analysis sessions will be.  Also, save the DXP after updating the Tools > Options menu in order to apply them.  If you close the DXP without saving, the settings will be lost.
