 In the preferences dialog, select \bxname{Test} from the tree on the left hand side.

From this page, you can configure your preferences for:
\begin{description}
\item [Auto-scrolling and -expanding:]{When the checkbox is marked, the views and browsers in \app{} automatically scroll in the direction you move the mouse when you are dragging and dropping. Trees will also be automatically expanded when you hover over them while dragging items.}
\item [Minimizing the \ite{}:]{When the checkbox is marked, \app{} is automatically minimized when test execution begins. This is useful if you are letting tests run on the same machine you are specifying on.}
\item [\gdaut{} confirmation dialog:]{When the checkbox is marked, a dialog appears to check if you are sure when you click the  \bxcaption{stop \gdaut{}} button.}
\item [Original \gdcase{} name:]{When the checkbox is activated, you can see the original name of a referenced \gdcase{} in brackets behind a new name you enter for the \gdcase{}. This can help you to see and search for \gdcases{} you have reused. }
\item[\gdstep{} information:]{When this checkbox is activated, you see the details about the \gdstep{} (the component name and type, and the action) in square brackets behind the \gdstep{} name. If you do not want to see these details, you can deactivate this checkbox.}
\item[Show referenced children:]{When this option is not active, you can only see  referenced parent \gdcases{} in the \gdtestcasebrowser{}. The referenced \gdcases{} contained in these \gdcases{} are not displayed. This action can be useful if you want to improve the speed of working with the \ite{}.}
\item [\gdproject{} auto load:]{If you have selected a \gdproject{} to be automatically loaded \bxpref{TasksAutoLoadProject}, then you can stop the auto-loading by deactivating the checkbox.}
\item [Switching to the \execpersp{}:]{When the test begins, \app{} can automatically change to the \execpersp{}. You can choose to always be asked, to always change, or to never change. }
\item [Data files location:]{You can specify a location where external data files (e.g. Excel files) are held, or use the workspace directory as the base location. }
\bxtipp{The advantage of using the workspace as a location for your data files is that you can view these in the navigator view directly in the \ite{}. Windows users can even open Excel files from the \ite{} using the In-Place editor.}
