Design Environment Options Dialog Box

The Design Environment Options dialog box allows you to control the visual appearance and display of the AWR Design Environment program, its tabbed workspace, and docked windows. To access this dialog box, choose Tools > Options. This dialog box contains the following options:

Field Description
Theme Choose one of the following for the visual appearance of the AWR Design Environment workspace: Classic, Contemporary, or Modern, with specific color options or a system default color option.
Tabbed Workspace Select this check box to add a workspace tab for each window that you open. For example, tabs may display for your schematic, layout, graph, and output equations windows.

Multirow tabs: Select this check box to wrap tabs to a second row when their number exceeds the length of the workspace area. Clear this check box to scroll horizontally to view tabs that display outside of the workspace area.
Location: Choose the border on which you want to display workspace tabs (Top, Left, Bottom, or Right).
Docked Windows Select Hide tabs as group to hide the Project, Element, and Layout tabs as a group when you click the "push pin" (Auto Hide toggle) icon on any of these tabs. Clear this check box to individually hide a tab when you click the "pushpin" icon on that tab.
Select Close tabs as group to close the Project, Elements, and Layout tabs as a group when you click the "x" (Close) icon on any of these tabs. Clear this check box to individually close a tab when you click the "x" icon on that tab. To reopen a closed window, choose View and the appropriate window option.
