Overview: Settings

Monarch Classicmaintains a host of settings that you can use to establish default input and export folders, report translation options, and display options.

Defaults are saved in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section of the Windows Registry.

Several settings are also saved in your model files. This allows you to tailor these settings for different reports. Settings saved in a model file take precedence over settings saved in the Registry. The following table indicates where each setting is saved.
