Global Settings

    These are global settings that do not change per-project. You can think of them as System Preferences on macOS or Settings on iOS. They control various aspects of ShotPro. You can access them by clicking on the Settings button (upper-right corner of the Stage Toolbar).


    These settings are divided into four sections (Stage, Navigation, User Interface, and Other). For specific information about each option, please refer to Tooltips.
