User files location

By default, user-specific files of Atlantis (document templates, backup files, spellcheck lexicons, etc) are stored under the "My documents\Atlantis" folder. But you can choose a different location for these files by clicking the "Browse..." button next to the "User files location" edit box. You would have a choice to copy current user files to a new location, move them to a new location, or ignore them altogether and use any files available at the new location.

Save supercompact RTF documents

When this option is on, Atlantis saves text and pictures to RTF documents in a more compact format.

Note that some older word processors might be unable to open such compact documents properly.

Extract file name from document

When this option is on, Atlantis suggests the first sentence of your new document as a filename when you save it for the first time.

When this option is off, the initial filename is suggested (as a rule, Doc01.rtf or similar).

Reload open documents at startup

When this option is on, and you close Atlantis, all currently open documents are memorized by Atlantis, and will be automatically reopened next time you launch Atlantis.

Offer document properties on saving

When this option is on, Atlantis displays the File | Properties... dialog when you save a document for the first time. In that dialog, you can enter document properties such as title, subject, author, keywords, and comments.

Backup Files...

Click this button to customize the Backup Files feature of Atlantis.

Plain Text Files...

Click to specify how Atlantis should save plain text documents through the "Save As..." command. You can instruct Atlantis to display the "File Conversion" dialog every time a plain text document gets "saved as...". In that dialog, you can choose the desired encoding (UTF-8, Windows code pages, etc) for your text file. Alternatively, Atlantis can automatically save plain text files in the encoding of your choice every time you use the "Save As..." command.

Save cursor position

When this option is on, Atlantis memorizes the current cursor position every time you save your RTF, DOC, DOCX, or COD document. Next time you open that document, Atlantis automatically places the cursor at the memorized position.

When this option is off, the cursor is placed at the beginning of the document when you open it.

Safeguard every XX minutes (against system failure & crashes)

Atlantis can automatically create safe copies of all open documents in their current state. In the event of a fatal crash or accidental shutdown of your computer, Atlantis will be able to restore your documents from these safe copies.

When this option is on, Atlantis creates Safe Copies for all open documents with the specified time interval.

Open hyperlinks to supported documents in Atlantis

When this option is on, Atlantis will open clicked hyperlinks to supported documents (RTF, DOC, DOCX, TXT, etc) and pictures itself, ignoring the current file associations.

When this option is off, clicked hyperlinks to documents of any type will be opened by the application associated with a particular file type. For example, a hyperlink to a BMP file will be opened by MS Paint, or by another application associated with the BMP file extension.

Download images from the Web

When you paste from a Web browser to Atlantis, the clipboard data might contain not the actual images but their Web addresses (URLs). Check this option if you want Atlantis to download the actual images from the Web when required.

"Save to File..." and "Load from File..."

Click the Save to File... button to save all the current Atlantis settings to an external INI file. To load the saved settings from such an INI file, click the Load from File... button.
