INI File

The program uses an ini file to store settings. Here are some information about this, available for tweaking.
The file settings.ini is located under the program folder and it is automatically generated each time the program starts without the file present to this folder.
It is highly recomended not to change values in this file if you are not sure what are you doing or at least create a backup before any change. Be warned that the following info are for advanced users only. Messing with this file may cause program instability and may lead to crashes.
