Document Template Options and Parameters
You can set AutoTag's options to control how tags are read and how they display in your document template. To set these options, select the Options icon from the Options menu.
The Standard tab in the Options dialog allows you to change the look and feel, change whether tag names or select fields are displayed, and set the default locale.
The Advanced tab in the Options dialog allows you to change whether tags are written as fields (Word only) or as text, change how tags are read by AutoTag, and change the menu profile.
The Design menu profile shows all of the standard AutoTag icons. The UDT only menu profile removes the Data Bin, Tag Builder and Edit Tag icons.
