"Minimize Shelf into Tray by Close button" - changes the conventional behavior of the
Close button, from exiting the whole program to minimizing
Shelf window into
Tray. This feature prevents you from accidentally exiting the program every time you press the
Close button. This way you can have more space in the taskbar for other programs and don't see the
Shelf even then when you switch between application windows using the Alt+Tab shortcut.
"Launch application with Windows start" - automatically runs RefShelf after the OS has booted. This feature allows you to always be in touch with the program immediately when you need it.
"Hidden in tray" - force the application to start hidden in
Tray after it automatically launches with the OS. This feature allows starting the application in the background and do not show the
Shelf window on startup making the app startup completely "silent" for you.
30 sec." - define the app autorun delay. This feature allows OS to have processing resources of your computer for load more important programs during startup. RefShelf will run after the specified delay. Therefore, this is a deterministic launch of the program in order to do not interfere with OS startup. For a computer with SSD as a boot drive, the 30 seconds delay will be enough. You can increase this value on your discretion if your OS still loads something after the current delay or decrease to 0 if OS startup time doesn't matter for you.
"Enable Shelf Global Hotkeys" - register the specified system-wide hotkeys in OS.
The global hotkeys can only be registered if this keyset is not reserved yet in your system by another application.
"Show Tips" - activates the pop-up pads with the tips above the
Notification Area. Tips may be helpful if you are new to the program. If you are already familiar with the basic features of the program, you can disable tips here or directly on the pad by deselecting "Show tips" checkmark.
During adding references from the browser or clipboard, RefShelf will store them as an image files into the "RefShelf" subfolder of your current user's "Pictures" folder. When you remove
Cards with a links on those
Reference Images, the actual
Reference Images files itself continue to exist on your drive in ...RefShelf/Pictures folder. This clearing function can help you to automatically remove this kind of "lost" images from ...Pictures\RefShelf folder if you no longer need them.
