Sort options - select here how to sort the items in a folder. This can be done also by clicking the corresponding header item in the list view.
Show Folders options - defines if (and how) the folders will be displayed also in the list view.
Single click to open - if checked then a single click is sufficient to open a file.
Show also shortcuts - show and use also links (shortcuts) to the files.
Open only plot files - if checked, then only plot files (as they are defined by the masks in the Preferences dialog) are opened by SPLOT via the file explorer. Other files are opened (run) by system. It is not recommended to uncheck this option.
Auto synchronize - if checked, then the file explorer automatically synchronizes with the just opened file. The synchronization means, that the file explorer switches to the folder in which the file resides and marks the file in the list view as selected.
Auto expand - if checked, then each selected item (folder) in the folder tree view is automatically expanded to show all child items (folders). If the selection is canceled without accessing a child item, then the previous automatic expansion is also canceled.
Show always selection - if checked, then any selection(s) in the file explorer (i.e. selected item(s) in the list and tree view) is permanently visible even if a corresponding view has not focus.
Alignment - select here how to align the explorer window in SPLOT.
Split - select here how to split the explorer's views (list and tree).
