|PanGazer – general settings|
The Settings menu lets you change settings that apply to all windows. These are:
Hide status and overlays – this overrides the individual Status and Overlays settings described below. If checked neither status nor overlays are displayed. Use the Space Bar to toggle between ‘hide all’ and ‘show selected items’.
Status display – lets you customize the status shown in the window (‘dynamic’ status, which might alter as you change the view or move the mouse, is shown at top right and ‘static’ status, referring to the loaded image, is shown at bottom right).
The ‘dynamic’ status options refer to the current view; by default, only the first is shown. The options are:
The ‘static’ status options describe the source image and are only shown if the requested information is available, i.e., is in the Exchangeable image file (Exif) metadata. The default for these status settings is to show the status. The options are:
Overlays – lets you turn on or off information that augments the view:
If the Image Geography dialog is open then both overlays will be shown (if valid values are available/have been applied), independent of these settings. In addition, Show compass points will be set if you use the Set North pop-up menu option and similarly Show tilt angles will be set if you choose Set horizon.
Measurement units – selects the units used when elevations are displayed. Here you can choose any or all of Metric, Statute (customary), or Nautical units. By default, Metric will be used.
This sub-menu self-orders; when you uncheck an item it is moved to the bottom of the list and when you check an item it is moved above any unchecked items. This lets you control the order in which units are displayed (also, the top item is always selected so elevations can always have units).
Statute and Nautical units both use feet for elevations; both units are offered to keep the selection consistent with MapGazer.
Coordinate formats – changes the format used for displaying Latitude and Longitude; the formats available are:
Please see Coordinate formats for examples.
Console settings – changes the console and diagnostic settings:
All the above settings are saved in a file (PanGazer.ini) provided that the folder containing PanGazer.exe is writable. Settings saved also include details of the image and viewpoint last viewed, the current enhancement values, the last-loaded image file folder, and the screen position of the last-viewed window, etc. Settings are only saved for the last-viewed window (view).
