Undo Operations Limit

Controls the number of operations that can be undone by the Undo command.

Limited Only the specified number of actions can be undone

Save

Specify an auto save time interval

Auto Save Enables automatic saving functionality
Time Interval The time interval between automatic saves

Toolpath

Scaling of toolpath groups Allow toolpath groups to be scaled when checked. When a toolpath group is scaled the toolpaths will automatically be recalculated using the original strategy parameters. If unchecked, toolpath groups cannot be resized.
Clip toolpaths to plate Output toolpaths will not extend beyond plate boundaries when checked
Horizontal cutting Allow toolpaths to be rotated out of the horizontal X-Y plane when checked. This option is only applicable if using a machine that is capable of cutting toolpaths not in the X-Y plane.

Misc

Bump Increment The distance a selected object is moved when the arrow key is pressed by default. Pressing Shift + Arrow Key will vary the bump increment based on the zoom level so when zoomed in close, objects move smaller increments.
Click Increment The amount that values change when adjustment arrows are clicked in dialogue boxes.
Snap Threshold The distance in pixels at which the snaps take effect and the cursor automatically moves to the snapped geometry
