  Connection String: Controls the connection string used to connect to the DOC xPress metabase

o   Templating

  Disable Data Dictionary Output: Controls whether to suppress data dictionary elements from being generated in documents. Disabling Data Dictionary output does reduce memory usage

  Disable Lineage Output: Controls whether to suppress Lineage Analysis images and tables from being generated in documents. Disabling Lineage Analysis output does reduce memory usage

  Lineage Analysis

o   Appearance Options

  Show Technology Type Adornments: Controls whether or not to show the name of the technology next to each node within the graph

  Input Link Color: Controls the color used for input links in the lineage display

  General Link Color: Controls the color used for general links in the lineage display

  Modification Link Color: Controls the color used for modification links in the lineage display

  External Dependency Color: Controls the color used for external dependency nodes in the lineage display

  Selected Item Color: Controls the color used for selected nodes in the lineage display

  Default View Mode: Controls the default view mode for interacting with lineage information

  Trace Mode Route Limit: Controls the maximum number of routes that can be found with trace mode

  Cache Lineage Sets Locally: If lineage sets are cached locally, then lineage will open faster the second time you view a particular solution snapshot.

  Cache Path: This is where the lineage sets are stored so that lineage opens faster. Faster storage will result in faster operation of lineage.
