There are two primary windows used to configure the IDE and your individual projects:

Options Window

The Options Window (or Preferences Window on Mac OS) contains all the settings for the IDE and its various components. Here you will find things like:

  • Editor Settings
  • Key Maps
  • Fonts and Colors
  • Automatic Code Formatting Rules
  • Compiler Installation Paths
  • Version Control Integration

Project Properties Window

The Project Properties Window contains all the settings for a specific project. Here you will find things like:

  • Target Device Selection
  • Development Tool Selection
  • Compiler Version Selection
  • Optimization Settings
  • Build Options

The Project Properties window will only be available after you create a project. The New Project Wizard collects much of the information you will find in the Project Properties window.
