This option allows you to configure default settings that control the visual display for bubbles that appear in all frames OTHER than the Introduction and End frames.
These defaults are in effect when you create and record new topics; however, you can override any of these bubble attributes when you edit a topic in the Topic Editor.
Note: You can control the default settings for the Introduction/End Frame bubbles using the Introduction/End Frame option.
Use the following options to configure the visual attributes of the bubbles. The sample bubble that appears in the center of the pane reflects the current default settings and automatically changes as you edit the settings.
Bubble icon: Choose an icon that appears inside of the bubble.
Pointer position: Choose from the various pointer positions for the bubble.
Font: Choose the font, font style and size for the bubble text. If you are using an expanded font, such as Arial or Times New Roman, you can choose from an extended list of language characters, including Greek and Russian (Cyrillic), if available in the Script field.
Background color: Choose the bubble background color.
Use Template Text: The Developer uses template text to automatically generate bubble text as you record an application. The template text varies depending on the keystroke or mouse action you performed during each step. If you deselect the Use template text option, the templates are disabled, and the bubbles are empty after recording.
If you decide to use templates, you can also add your own (custom) text to the bubble. By default, this text appears before the text that is populated by the template. The Show template text first option allows you to switch the order and have custom text appear after template text.
