If you click the button labelled
Reset button, this will reset the suppression of warning messages where you have perviously clicked the
Don't ask me warnings

If this checkbox is on, invisible characters (like spaces, tabs etc.) in search results are made visible.
Search results are shown with a nomeric location. Choose whether you want the location of search results zero-based (the first character is location 0) or one-based (the first character is shown as location 1.)
The main window contains a "history" popup which keeps the most-recently used search patterns. You can set how many of these patterns are kept in this popup menu.
This empties the pattern history popup. Be careful, this cannot be undone.
This button will delete your Pattern Library and replace it with the one supplied by ReX-T. All patterns that you added or modified will be lost. Be careful, this cannot be undone.
If this checkbox is on, when you add a new pattern to the library, the editor window will open automatically to let you edit/amend the new pattern right away.
When this checkbox is one, ReX-T will automatically make a backup copy of your pattern library once a day. If ReX-T is not running when a backup is due, it will make that backup the next time you run ReX-T.
This allows you to make a backup copy right now, independent from the daily backup schedule.
This will open a Finder window to show you were your Library backup is.
The library backup that ReX-T generates (either daily, or by pressing the Backup Library Now button) is a JSON-formatted file. If you ever need to restore that backup, follow the following steps:
Choose which language (Swift, Objective-C, or both) the sample code generator uses. If the Verbose checkbox is on, the sample code contains a generous amount of comments to help you understand the generated code.
