Options – Hinting\Big Hints

December 6th, 2010

This options page is similar to the Action Hints options page, but a bit simplified, however. The page manages settings for the DXCore big hints appearance, and allows you to test them. Also, here you can entirely disable the big hints from appearing.

DXCore Big hints options page

Use the “Test” button to see what the big hint will look like with the specified title and text in the appropriate text boxes.

Under the global settings section (which is used for testing actually) there is a list of features which have been performed. You can specify additional display options for the action hints associated with these features:
