Design Console is installed with a number of viewing options preset. If you like Design Console’s default look and feel, you can leave the settings as is. Otherwise, follow the instructions below to change Design Console’s appearance:

  1. In Design Console’s menu bar, click the Tools menu, and then click Options.

Note: Some changes in the viewing options will require that you restart the Design Console in order for the changes to take effect.

  1. In the Options dialog, click the General button.

There are two application styles available, Multiple Document Interface (MDI) and Project Document Interface (PDI). The style selected determines how Design Console displays the assorted editors and dialogs of EPX. The default style is MDI, which presents Design Console in a single window. When opened, all editors and dialogs are contained within the work area of the Design Console window. If this style is preferable, leave the Multiple Document Interface (MDI) option selected.

The other available style, PDI, presents Design Console and each of its available editors and dialogs as within their own individual windows. You can manage and arrange the Design Console windows as you like on your desktop. To implement this style instead, select the Project Document Interface (PDI) option.

  1. Select the Show Tooltips check box to enable tooltips to appear when you drag your mouse pointer over tools. Select the Show Toolbar check box to display the toolbars.

  2. Click Apply to save any changes that you have made.

  3. Click the Editors button.

  1. There are two editor styles available, Modern (the default) and Classic, which affect the general appearance of Design Console’s editors, such as their fonts and colors. In addition, the Classic style maximizes available screen space by not displaying the description area that appears at the top of editors when the Modern style is selected. If the Modern style appeals to you, leave the Modern Style option selected. Otherwise, select the Classic Style option.

  2. Select the Show Status Bar check box to display a status bar at the bottom of each editor.

  3. Select the Show Editor Buttons check box to display OK, Cancel, Apply, and Help buttons at the bottom of each editor (above the status bar). You can maximize available screen space by not displaying these buttons. When the editor buttons are not displayed, you can access their functions via keyboard shortcuts or the Design Console menu bar.

  4. Click Apply to save your changes.

  5. Click the Look & Feel button.

  1. Select one of the options — Windows, Java, or Motif — to change Design Console’s overall look and feel. (To implement a change to Design Console’s look and feel, you must close and restart Design Console.)

  2. When you have finished making any desired changes, click OK.
