Descriptors. The descriptors can be edited and theirs positions adjusted to any position on the
Subject Display scale. Setting the position to a value less than
zero, will cause the descriptor to disappear. The changes take effect when the associated "Apply" button or the "Apply All" button is
activated. The new settings can be saved to a file through the "File" menu. They are also saved to a defaults file that will
automatically restore them the next time the program is run.
The "Message" with light green background is actually a 7th descriptor without location. If the "Visible" check box is not checked, the Message disappears when the "Apply" button is clicked. When the "Visible" check box is checked, then the "Beep" check box permits enabling the sounding of the standard beep when the "Apply button is clicked.
Fonts & Styles (new October 2006)
The user can modify the appearence of the Subject Display by changing the "message" and "descriptors" fonts, colors and styles (not framed, framed flat or framed 3D). The scale font can also be changed, as well as the "descriptors" alignment with their associated vertical lines.
Window and Slider (new October 2006)
"Auto size" causes the subject display to occupy the whole monitor screen.
"Center Display" places the slider near the center of the current window as defined by the settings of its left, width, top and height.
"Undo" restores the latest re-sizing changes.
Tools/Calibration. The Tools menu gives access to a self explanatory calibration procedure (instructions appear on the "Subject Display"). The Magnitude Estimation device maximum display can be set to 100% or 110% as desired.
