The Linguist's Shoebox

Integrated data management and analysis for the field linguist


How do you know which settings Shoebox is using?

The Shoebox Setup/Installer program copies several generic settings files to the user settings folder (e.g., MDF.typ, n_lang.lng, v_lang.lng). How do you know which settings files and items are actually being used for the database files that are open in the current project? In the following lists, Shoebox displays in bold font style the settings that it is using:

Shoebox does not allow you to delete the bold items in these lists. However, in other lists (e.g., Filters and Variables), it does not display in bold font style the items that it is using because it does allow you to delete them.
