Step by Step Instructions for Using the Session Setup Dialog Box.

1.Specify a session name in the Session Name drop-down list box. You may select a session from the drop-down list or create a new session name using the Save As... button. If the Save As... button is used to create a new session then the new session inherits all the properties of the selected session (except the session name of course).


2. Select a category from the Setup Items list. The pane on the right-hand side of the dialog box displays the options for that category. Make any changes you desire and repeat the process for each category you wish to tailor. Links to help information for each of the categories are listed below.


3. Click on the Cancel button to exit the dialog box without saving your changes. Click on the Apply button to save your changes, but remain in the dialog box. Click on the OK button to save your changes and exit the dialog box.
