Setting Indicators Options

Indicators options are preferences that correspond to the indicator window which displays currently running tasks. This appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen when a task runs. The window displays the name of the task, the step number currently executing, and total progress of the running task. You can also modify the default hot-key used to stop a currently running task.

To set Indicator options:

  1. From the System menu in the Task Administrator window, select Options.

  2. Click the Indicators tab (illustrated below):

  1. To show a running task indicator window (which appears in the bottom right corner of the screen above the clock) enable the option Display a running task window when a task is running (this option is enabled by default).

  2. If the Display a running task window when a task is running option is enabled, other options become available which you can choose to enable/disable:

    1. The indicator window will have a standard windows title bar, which allows the user to drag the indicator window to a different position on the screen. To include this title bar, enable the option Display title bar on Running Task window (this option is disabled by default).

    2. The indicator window normally remains above any other windows that may appear in the same area. To disable this option allowing other windows to be placed on top of the indicator window, disable the option Make Running Task window always on top (this option is enabled by default).

    3. To display the task indicator window as slightly transparent, enable the option Use transparent window (this option is enabled by default).

  3. The Running Task interruption hot-key parameter allows you to modify the default hot-key used to control a running task. The default hot-key is Ctrl + Alt + Page Up.  

  4. Click OK to save changes.
