Settings that apply to your installation of TempoWeave, regardless of the weaving design, are stored here. Some of these settings are defaults and can be changed at the project (WIF) level.
Default number of shafts and treadles can be set for your most commonly designed weaving designs. This setting can be changed for any design under the Project menu. Note that the default shafts and treadles only impacts new designs created after the setting is changed. To change shafts and treadles on current designs, change as described in Project Shafts and Treadles.
The default mode of designing is to use a Tie-Up. Many design with a tie-up even if they Convert to Lift Plan for a table or dobby loom when the design is complete.
The default directory location for saving your designs is documents/tempoweave unless a different location is specified in the "Default Location for new WIF Files". Typically this default location will have subfolders created to store WIFs by categories that assist in finding designs.
Telemetry is a setting that saves any TempoWeave crashes to assist in troubleshooting. By default, telemetry is enbled.
A grid overlay shaft of 4 and grid overlay thread setting of 10 will cause TempoWeave to show a thick horizontal line every 4 shafts and a thick vertical line every 10 threads in the threading. These numbers can be changed in Settings on the Home tab.

Similarly, the setting of gris overlay shaft 4 and thread 10 causes teh tie-up to have a thick divider line every 4 shafts.
The treadling will show a vertical line every 4 treadles and horizontal line every 10 picks as shown below.
Grid Overlay Example on Tie-up and Treadling
If you prefer not to see a grid overlay, turn it off by unclicking "Show Grid Overlay".
The results will look like this:

The settings tab has the default grid settings for new WIF files. These settings can be changed on the Project tab. The settings apply to the drawdown on the screen as well as the printouts.
