General Options General Tools > Options > General Use to set memory allocation for worksheets, choose to have Minitab display a warning about separators for data on startup, and set the initial directory for opening and saving files. Note After you click OK in this dialog box, the configuration you specify will activate the next time you start Minitab. Memory Usage: Use the slider to set memory allocation. Move the slider closer to Share nicely to share more memory with other programs currently running. Move the slider closer to Use as much as necessary to share less memory with other programs currently running. Note A worksheet can contain up to 4000 columns, 1000 constants, and up to 10,000,000 rows depending on how much memory your computer has. Display warnings about separators on startup: Check to display warnings about separators when you start Minitab. "Separators" are characters that show how data should be interpreted. Decimal separators show where the decimal point is located between digits. List separators show where one value is distinct from another. The warning message should only display if your International or Regional settings in Windows are not set to English/United States. In the Windows Control Panel under Regional Options, you can change how decimal and list separators appear to match the conventions in your country. If those conventions conflict with Minitab (for example, using semi-colons as list Copyright Minitab Inc. All rights reserved. 15

16 Tools, Customizing Minitab, and Setting Options separators conflicts with Minitab's use of semi-colons to end session commands), you will get a warning message that explains how Minitab will separate decimal numbers and list items. Uncheck to suppress the warning message if you are aware how Minitab interprets decimal numbers and lists. Or suppress it by changing your regional options to match the Minitab default of English/United States. For details, see the documentation for your operating system. Initial directory: Enter the directory to use for opening and saving Minitab files. Default Font Selection Use only fonts appropriate to the regional settings: Uncheck this option if you need to customize Minitab with fonts that are inconsistent with your regional settings. Upon startup, Minitab checks your regional settings to ensure that the fonts it uses are appropriate. If, for example, your regional settings imply the use of Asian characters, Minitab will make sure that all of the fonts specified in Tools > Options support Asian characters. If there is a conflict and this option is checked, Minitab will reset the font to one appropriate to the regional settings. If the option is not checked Minitab will not change fonts based on your regional settings.
