4.5. Modifying Page-Editing and Application Options

SharePoint Designer comes with some default general application settings that define its behavior when it's open. These settings can be controlled by the Application Options dialog box, as shown in Figure 4.11, which is accessible by choosing Tools Application Options. The Application Options dialog box has four tabs:

  • General: Allows you to establish application startup options that check whether SharePoint Designer is the default editor for Web pages and Office documents, toggle the SharePoint Designer status bar (displayed at the bottom of the SharePoint Designer interface), show warnings in the status bar for expired FrontPage Include components, etc.

  • Configure Editors: This tab allows you to associate programs with various file extensions or change existing associations. You can also add, modify, or delete extensions.

  • Reports View: Allows you to set some settings that apply to the site reports generated for Web pages by SharePoint Designer

  • FTP: Allows you to choose whether a file extension is transferred via FTP in binary or ASCII format
