General Preferences

Set general preferences, such as text file encoding and proxy settings.

Select Tools > Preferences (or, if you are on a Mac, > Preferences), then select General to access these preferences.

Text File Encoding

See Language support (text encoding).

Proxy Setting

If you need to access a web service using a proxy, enter:
  • Host - the hostname or host IP address
  • Port - The port number on which the service is listening

Browser Setting

In the Web browser path field, you can specify the browser to be used with the Genero Browser Client. Enter the path and filename of the executable of the browser that you wish to use, or select the file from your file system using the Browse icon. If this field is left blank, the default browser for your operating system is used.

In the Web browser options field, you can enter options to be used when starting the browser. For example, to start the Chrome browser in incognito mode, you would enter "--incognito" in this field. Reference the browser vendor documentation for information on available browser options.

Slow Networks

Select the checkbox to optimize for slow networks. If this option is selected, several components of Genero Studio change their behavior to reduce network traffic.

For example, if the current configuration is a remote configuration, Code Editor compiles the edited file locally using the DVM bundled with GST instead of the DVM of the remote configuration.

Users & Passwords

Press the Clear button to clear all users and passwords stored in Genero Studio.
