Check give option to disable outputs when opening a .transform file if you want the option to disable any outputs with write mode set to overwrite or append. This prevents accidentally writing over existing files. Note that this check is never made when you open .transform files with Run>Auto Run checked or using the -cli command line argument.
Check use native file windows to use the native Mac file open/save windows.
Check make a sound when processing completed if you want to make a system sound every time processing is completed.
Set At start-up depending on what you want to happen when Easy Data Transform starts.
Set User interface theme to Automatic to follow the theme of the operating system or override it by setting Light or Dark. This is only available if your operating system supports a dark theme. Changing User interface theme does not update the Center pane colors. You can also toggle between themes using a keyboard shortcut.
Set Tool bar icon size to the size of the icons you wish to display in the tool bar.
Set Copy data to clipboard text/plain as according to how you want data to be formatted, when it is copied to the clipboard with MIME type text/plain.
•Comma Separated Value uses comma as a column delimiter and quotes carriage returns, commas and quotes within data.
•Tab Separated Value uses tab as a column delimiter and converts carriage returns and tabs to spaces within data.
•Plain text outputs without any column delimiter.
Data is also copied to the clipboard with MIME type text/csv in Comma Separated Value format and to MIME type text/html as an HTML fragment.
Set Optimize processing for to:
•Minimum memory use to use memory compression to reduce the memory used. This is usually recommended. It works best when columns contain repeated values.
•Maximum speed to turn off memory compression. This might be faster, but uses a lot more memory. It might also be slower if the memory required is more than your RAM. It might also cause Maximum memory usage to be exceeded.
Set Maximum memory usage to the maximum amount of memory that you want Easy Data Transform to be allowed to use. If this limit is exceeded the program will try to exit cleanly.
Set Right pane processing delay depending on how long you want to wait after changes in the Right pane before starting processing, when Run>Auto Run is checked. Setting the value to 0 is generally not recommended, as this means that every single click in the Right pane will cause processing.
Set Zoom wheel behavior according to how you want the mouse wheel to work in the Center pane. Hold down the Option key while moving the mouse wheel to switch between zoom and scroll. If Scroll direction: Natural is checked in your Mac Settings>Mouse then the directions will be reversed.

The Locale language and country setting affects how some numbers and dates are displayed. Consequently it may have an affect on some transforms. It does not change the language of the user interface, which is English only.
