System Preferences Tips

Here's some good news for those that like to tweak program settings; You aren't married to the default system preferences of Manga Studio. You can adjust parts of the program to best suit your needs. These can range from changing the computer's memory allocation to the system to changing the color of your rulers. All of this is located in the Preferences dialog box, accessible from the main menu by choosing FileOPreferences.

It would take way too many pages to cover every single option in the Preferences dialog box, so instead 1 go over some of what I think are the important performance and comfort tweaks you can set to help make your experience with Manga Studio just that much more enjoyable.

Increasing the display quality

By default, Manga Studio has the page display set at a standard quality. However, if you have a strong enough system (and really, you'd need a pretty weak system for this not to work well), you can increase the display quality a bit so that lines don't look quite as jagged as you rotate a page.

On the Page tab of the Preferences dialog box, shown in Figure 14-1, the first option you see is the Display Quality drop-down list. When you click the list, you see three options (Standard, High, and Maximum). Try each of them out and see how your system likes the adjustments.

You don't see any major difference in quality when the page is in its normal (zero-degree) position. The only time you see any difference is when you use the Rotate tool to turn the page as you work. As you can see in Figure 14-2, the differences are slight, but you might find it more comfortable to work at High or Maximum quality than at Standard.
