Long String Viewer

The long string viewer allows you to see strings that are too long to be viewed at the current column width. 


Show Long String Viewer

By default, the viewer is on. To use it, simply left click on the cell you want to examine and a viewing window will display the string.   To disable it, uncheck the Show Long String Viewer option.


Hide Automatically

By default, the viewing window will close automatically when your cursor leaves the cell that contains the string you are viewing.  To turn off this behavior, uncheck the Hide Automatically option.


Long String Viewer Width

The value entered here gives the maximum number of characters that will be displayed on a line of the long string viewer.  If more characters are needed, the string will be wrapped in a box of the given width.  If fewer are needed the size of the viewer window will be adjusted downward to fit.


Maximum Length Displayed

This is the maximum string width that will be displayed in the long string viewer.  Note that the maximum length of a string in Stat/Transfer is 32767 characters.


Variable Info Viewer

If you click on the variable name at the top of the grid, a Variable Info Viewer box will open up that will show you the variable name, its type and, if available, its label. 


Show Variable Info Viewer

The Variable Info Viewer box is on by default. You can turn off this feature by unchecking the box.


Hide Automatically

By default, the viewing window will close automatically when your cursor leave the cell that contains the variable you are viewing.  To turn off this behavior, uncheck the Hide Automatically option.


Autosize Column Names

The columns in the data viewer are sized to accommodate the width of the data.  By checking this box, you can have the columns sized to accommodate the variable names.


Data Viewer Font

You can use this option to control the font that is used in the data viewer.  Note that if you are displaying international character sets, you should choose a Unicode font, or at the very least a font that is capable of displaying the characters that you present in your data.
