Setting Business Process Modeler preferences

Business Process Modeler provides the Preferences dialog box, a Configuration interface that enables you to easily modify the more commonly used configuration parameters. Once you have defined these configuration parameters in the Preferences dialog box, they are automatically set for each new project.
To set your preferences in Business Process Modeler:
1. From Tools menu, click Preferences, to open the Preferences dialog box.
2. Expand OpenEdge > Business Process Modeler in the left pane: the following options are displayed:
*Activity: to set the default properties of an Activity workstep. For more information, see Using the Activity page.
*Application: to set the default properties and attributes for a process. For more information, see Using the Application page.
*Diagram: to set the default size of the Diagram view, appearance, and other settings. For more information, see Using the Diagram page.
*Export: to set the width and height (in pixels) of the process template diagram, when exported in JPG format. For more information, see Using the Export page.
*Simulation: to set the default simulation-related properties in Simulation perspective. For more information, see Using the Simulation page.
3. After defining the above preferences, click OK to close the Preferences dialog box.
