Dimensions Preferences dialog box

Use the Preferences dialog box when you want to determine the method Dimensions CM uses to detect whether a file has changed. This setting takes effect for any files under the selected folder unless it is set differently for a subfolder.

Field Description Rules and guidelines

Use modification time

Select this option if you want Dimensions CM to use the timestamp to detect whether the selected file, or the files in the selected folder, have changed when the file sizes are the same.

 

Checksum file content

Select this option if you want Dimensions CM to also use the file checksum to detect whether the selected file, or the files in the selected folder, have changed when the timestamps are the same.

 

Expand substitution variables

Select this option if you want item header substitution to be performed for the item file(s).

This option can also be set via the desktop client in the Tools | Preferences dialog box.

Enable support for network folders

Select this option if you want to enable Dimensions CM Windows Explorer support for folders accessed via a network.

This option is disabled by default.
