Setting User Settings
In MultiLedger you can set both program Preferences and User Settings. Options set on Preferences apply to all users in a particular set of company files. Options set on User Settings, on the other hand, apply to each individual user. For more information on Preferences, see the previous section, “Setting Program Preferences.”
You can use User Settings under the File menu to set various MultiLedger options, such as automatically launching the last opened company and automatically showing scheduled recurring entries when you open a company. After choosing User Settings from the File menu, the following window appears:
Select each option according to the following guidelines:
Open Last Company on Launch
If checked, the last set of company files that was used will open automatically when you launch MultiLedger. If you want to open another set of company files, simply choose Close Company from the File menu, then choose Open Company from the File menu and select a set of company files using the dialog box that appears. Or choose Open Recent Company and select a company from the list.
Prompt If No Backup inThis Many Days
If checked, MultiLedger will ask you to make a backup of your company files when you attempt to close the company or Exit/Quit MultiLedger. Enter the number of days you want between backups in the edit box.
After the number of days you enter has passed, you will be asked whether you want to make a backup of your company files when you close the company or Exit M ultiLedger. If you click Yes on the alert, a Save As dialog appears. You should follow the instructions in Backing Up & Restoring to make a backup of your company files. If you click No on the alert, no backup is made and the company files close or MultiLedger quits as normal.
If the “Prompt If No Backup In # Days” check box is checked and you enter zero (0) or leave the edit box blank, you will be alerted to make a backup every time you close the company or quit MultiLedger.
