The General Options allow the user to change the basic settings of the scan software.



This section handles minor settings of the user interface:

Numeration Type
allows to choose whether to use the FDI numeration or the Universal Tooth Numbering system, most commonly used in the United States.
allows to choose the language for the software. After selecting a new language the software needs to be restarted for the change to take effect.
Max Ris During Acqui
It's the minimum number of images shown during acquisition. If the value is at 0, the user will not see the image build up on the monitor while the scanner is working. We suggest to keep this value between 0 and 10 as a maximum. Showing more images could affect the correct functioning of the scanner.
Use OnScreen Keyboard
Activate this option to use the screen keyboard with your touch screen and avoid having an hardware keybord in your office.
