Value Labels Browser

If your input file has value labels, you can display them, for each variable, on the Variables dialog box by checking this option.  You can choose to have the value labels displayed in a Vertical area, just to the right of the variable names or in a Horizontal area, below the variable names.  The default is to display the value labels in a horizontal box below the variable names.

File History Length

Stat/Transfer stores a history of the files that you have read for each Input File Type.  You can control the number of files that are stored with this option.  The default is 10 specifications for each file type.

Add Time and Date to log messages

If this is checked, the time and date will be written to each line of your log.

Clear Log before opening input file

By default, the messages that are written to the Log dialog box are cleared when a new file is opened.  You can override this behavior and save all messages by unchecking this box.  Note that if you are concerned with permanently documenting your transfer activities, you should use the Automatic Transfer Logging option that will automatically write a log to disk for each transfer.

Stat/Transfer GUI font

This controls the font that is used in the Stat/Transfer user interface (GUI).  It will be dependent on your operating system.  You can use the Choose Font button to call up a dialog box that will allow you to choose a different font. After you make your selection, you will need to close and then restart Stat/Transfer for your change to take effect.  Note that you can get seriously ugly results by choosing an inappropriate font.  It is a good idea to remember the font that you started with.

Display input and output encodings on Transfer screen
If this is checked, you will see the encoding format for both the input and output file on the Transfer tab.

For more on encoding, see Encoding Options.
