If this is ticked, fixture labels will automatically include the fixture type and number when renumbering.

Check Fixture Type When Renumbering (Beta)

If you check the box next to Check Fixture Type When Renumbering (seen in image below) each fixture type will have its own count. When unchecked, all fixtures will be included in a single count.

Smart Context Categories

If this is ticked the relevant ribbon car context category will automatically become active when moving between windows.

Display Welcome Screen On Startup

If this is ticked, the welcome screen will display each time you open the DotActiv edition.

Run Ticket Manager Service

If this selection is ticked, the ticket manager will run in the background to monitor open tickets and notifications. There is also another tic box that allows you to open the ticket manager in a new tab on startup.

Use Metric System

If this box is ticked, the system will use centimetres as the base of the Unit of Measure for positions and sizes as opposed to inches. By unticking this box, you will use the Imperial system.

Please be careful that changing this setting will affect imports and existing planograms.

Disable UOM Conversions

This displays any auto conversions of the display of size or positions value to a UOM other than the base centimetres or inches.
