Save Control Settings
Using the Control Settings history list
BorderMania Pro and PhotoSwizzle remember the last control settings
for each filter any time you click the OK button in the plugin main
window. They are also capable of remembering any number of other
settings combinations in a list that you can assign names to. This
list is called the control settings history list.
When an item in the list is selected, the control settings
change to the values saved in the list and the settings are
applied to the proxy image.
The list is accessed by the drop down list box near the bottom
of the plugin main window.
The rules for using the list, adding items and removing items
are simple. The idea was that it should work the way you would
expect a Windows application to work. If you are familiar with
the normal keyboard shortcuts for mouse actions, you can use
them as you like wherever the mouse actions are described
Add an item to the list
Adjust the control settings in the plugin main window to get the desired
effect for your image.
Left click the mouse once in the control settings edit box.
If there is already a name in the edit box, type over all or
part of it to create a new list item. This does not remove the
previous one showing in the edit box.
You can also select the entire name and delete it, but another
dialog box pops up and asks you to confirm that you want to
delete it from the list. Click the No button to keep the previous
item in the list.
If the edit box is empty, type the new name you want for the
current control settings.
Click the OK button and apply the filter to the image. The new
setting is saved in the list. If you click the CANCEL button
the new name is not saved.
Remove an item from the list
Select the item you wish to remove (see below for selecting
items). The name must be showing in the control settings
Select the entire name in the list box and delete it.
A new dialog box pops up asking you to confirm that want to
delete it. Click the Yes button.
The item disappears from the list but is not permanently deleted
unless you click OK to close the filter dialog box. If you click
CANCEL no action will be taken and the item will show up again the
next time you select the filter.
Select an item in the list
The list works just like any other standard Windows drop down
list box. Left click the mouse on the arrow at the right
side of the edit box and part or all of the list is displayed.
Right click again and the list collapses back to just the edit box.
When the list is displayed, left click the mouse on any item
to select it. You can use the mouse to scroll through the list
and change the selection.
Alternately you can use the keyboard up and down arrows to move
through the list one item at a time or the Page Up and Page Down
keys to move through the list several items at a time.
When the list is collapsed, if the Windows focus is on the
edit box you can move move through the list with the arrow or
Page Up and Page Down keys.
