Configuration

Preferences

Xournal ++ has multiple options that can be configured and customized. Most of these features can be found under Edit > Preferences.

Load / Save

Autosaving

Enable or disable automatic saving and set the time interval in which it will be done. If the document was previously saved in any folder, the autosave document will be in the same location as a hidden file. Otherwise the file will be saved in your Config folder in the subfolder autosave.

Note

The autosave path is about to change in release 1.2.0 and has already been changed in Xournal++ nightly builds.
Autosaves are now in your Cache folder in the subfolder autosaves.

Default Save Name

Name that will be proposed by default when using Save As option. Allows the use of placeholders.

Input System

TODO

Mouse

In this section you can set the behavior of the middle and right mouse buttons to associate tools with it. Each tool allows sub settings for thickness, color, stroke type, etc. if they are available.

Stylus

Pressure Sensitivity

Enables / disables pressure sensitivity to make thicker strokes when pressing the stylus more heavily. Only effective on tablets that support this feature.

Artifact Workaround

TODO

Stylus Buttons

Specifies the behavior of the buttons on the stylus when pressed, allowing them to be associated with tools just like the buttons on the mouse.

The Button 1 and Button 2 are typical side buttons. The Eraser is supported only by some styluses and works using the opposite side of the pen tip; precisely like a pencil from real life.

These changes are not persistent; in other words, once the stylus button is released, the previously held tool will be selected again.
