Customization

PedScope provides extensive configuration/customization options. These are all handled through the Preferences and Document Settings windows.

The Preferences window - accessed from the from the File menu - is used for settings that are not specific to any particular data set. Changes to the preferences do not cause data to be (re)calculated. They have global effect - preferences are not specific to any particular data file.

The Document Settings window - also accessed from the File menu - is used for all settings that can alter the actual data in some way - what data is stored, or how it is stored, how it is calculated, or the accuracy with which it is calculated. These settings can be saved along with the imported pedigree information and computed data (see: Saving As A PedScope Data File).

The following table summarises the broad categories of customization options and where they are set:
