The General tab contains settings that controls actions SWF Studio performs at startup.
1. SWF Studio ships with a database of helpful tips which point out features of SWF Studio that may not be immediately obvious to new users. These tips help improve your productivity so you can get the most out of SWF Studio.
2. If you enable this option, SWF Studio will automatically check for updates at startup and notify you when new updates are available. Because checking for updates can take some time, SWF Studio doesn't actually check every time. The update check will be performed at most once per hour. This option is enabled by default.
3. When enabled, this option causes SWF Studio to display a Splash screen at startup. This option can't be disabled if you are using SWF Studio in trial mode, in that case you will have to wait 5 seconds before you can start SWF Studio. This option is enabled by default.
4. This option is disabled by default. Enabling this option causes SWF Studio to automatically open last project file you were working on the next time you start SWF Studio. This option overrides the Default Project setting on the Files & Folders tab.
5. This option is disabled by default. Enabling this option causes SWF Studio to automatically save your project after a successful build. This is especially useful if you have enabled the feature to automatically increment build numbers on the Version Tab.
6. This option is enabled by default. This option causes SWF Studio to open a special Build Warnings. dialog at the end of a successful build. The Build Warnings dialog is intended mainly for new users of SWF Studio to help them avoid potential problems by drawing attention to generated build warnings.
7. Press OK to save your changes and close the Options dialog.
8. You can press the Cancel button, the Window close button or press the ESC key to close the Options dialog without saving your changes.
