If you have added at least one second text tab, you can use the commands in this section to define the graphics and display mode of the various text files.

First of all, you have to set the Display Mode of the text file, which may be:

Tabs - Horizontal: this is similar to a traditional filing cabinet: the contents are shown in files that you can leaf using the tabs horizontally placed at the top or bottom.

Tabs - Vertical: this is similar to a diary, where the contents are shown in files that you can leaf through using the tabs placed vertically on the left or right.

SlideShow: this is similar to a slideshow, where you can scroll through the text files using the side arrows, but there aren't any buttons with the names of the files.

The available options depend on the Display Mode that you have chosen

For Tabs - Horizontal and Tabs - Vertical you can define the graphics of the Navigation Buttons with the following options:

Position: this indicates where the buttons for moving between the text files are to be placed:  Top or Bottom for Tabs - Horizontal, and Left or Right for Tabs - Vertical.
Style: this defines the style of the navigation buttons.
Font Type: specifies the font, style and size to use for the text.
Size: this sets the width and height in pixels of the buttons. Leave the Keep Ratio selected to keep the ratio between width and height.

You can also use these options in the Color section for Tabs - Horizontal and Tabs - Vertical:

Text/Background/Border Color: these define the color of the text, background and borders of the buttons for moving around the text files.
Active Text/ Active Background: these define the color of the text and background of the buttons on mouseover.

For the SlideShow, the options for the graphic appearance of the Navigation Buttons are:

Display: this indicates whether the navigation buttons are to be Always visible, Invisible or Visible on mouseover.
Style: choose this option to define the button graphics, selecting one of the available images.

The options in the General are available for all the display modes:

Frame height: if this option is active, you can set the height in pixels of the text files.

The object automatically takes on the height of the longest text: when you set a Frame height, a scroll bar will appear on all the text files that are longer than the set height.

Autoplay [sec]: if selected, you can give the number of seconds that a text file is displayed for before the next appears.
Inner Margin: this gives the value in pixels of the margin (the space between the border and contents of the text file).
Effect: this indicates how the text files are to enter the window.
