Integrated preview: Content

Activate integrated preview for content:
If this option is enabled (default setting), the menu function “View / Integrated preview – use for content” (see Integrated preview (→Documentation FirstSpirit SiteArchitect)) can be selected in SiteArchitect for the active project, which means that editors can select individually whether or not they want to work with the integrated preview.
If the option is disabled, the menu function “View / Integrated preview – use for content” is not available in SiteArchitect for this project.

Zoom function:
individually adjustable: if this option is selected, the users themselves can select the scaling level in the particular project. The “Default” combo box allows the user to specify which scaling level should be preselected. The default setting is 80%.

fixed definition: if this option is selected, the selected scaling level is used project wide. The scaling cannot be changed by editors.

Content Highlighting
Control can be individually adjusted: if this option is selected, editors can individually adjust the Content Highlighting behavior using the menu item “View / Content Highlighting Control” (see Content highlighting control (→Documentation FirstSpirit SiteArchitect)). The “Default” combo box allows the user to specify what the predefined behavior should be. The default setting is “Workspace ↔ Preview”

fixed definition: if this option is selected, the selected behavior is used project wide. The editors cannot change the behavior.

Integrated preview: Media

The user can specify here whether the integrated preview for media can basically be used in the particular project and which particular file formats are to be used with the various applications.

Activate integrated preview for media:
If this option is enabled (default setting), the menu function “View” / “Integrated preview – use for media” can be selected in SiteArchitect for the active project, which means that editors can select individually whether they want to work with the integrated preview or not (see Integrated preview (→Documentation FirstSpirit SiteArchitect)).
