 +====== Designer ======
 +
 +Doing Options -> Options and clicking on Designer displays this pane: 
 +
 +{{  opt_designer.png ​ |}}
 +\\
 +#​remarks_header[Grid options]#
 +
 +**Display grid** shows the grid on the form designer canvas.
 +
 +**Snap to grid** causes controls, when created or moved, to align to the closest grid lines.
 +
 +The default **Grid size** is 8 x 8 pixels.
 + 
 +#​remarks_header[Windows]#​
 +
 +The //windows// are Object Tree, Object Inspector and Form List. 
 +
 +If **Keep standard layout** is checked, the layout of the windows can't be changed. If it is not checked: ​
 +  * If **Snap windows** is checked, window will glue to another window when moved near it.
 +  * If it is not checked, the user is free to position and size the windows any way he wishes.
 +
 +**Size and position saving** has no effect if **Keep standard layout** is checked. It determines whether the windows maintain their sizes and positions between Koda sessions. It may be set to:
 +  * //​Don'​t save// - The windows will be the default size at the default position when Koda is next run
 +  * //​Automatically//​ - The window sizes and positions will be as they were when this session ends
 +  * //​Manually//​ - The window sizes and positions will be those at the time Options -> Remember position was last selected.
 +
 +#​remarks_header[Other options]#
 +
 +If **Reflect form style changes at design time** is checked, changes in form styles will immediately visible at design time.
 +
 +Setting some styles can mess with your form, and you won't be able to return its previous state until form reloading. **Don'​t reflect unsafe styles** is on by default; this is the recommended setting. Change it at your own risk.
 +
 +#​remarks_header[Object Tree]#
 +
 +If **Always fully expand** is checked, when a form containing Groups is loaded, Object Tree shows the controls within them.
 +
 +If **By default use Caption instead of Name** is checked, when a form is loaded, Object Tree displays the Caption of each control rather than its Name.
